Manitoba's food-services spending sinks

  • Print

MANITOBA was one of four provinces to see a slight drop in sales for its food services and drinking-places industries in January.

The latest monthly figures released Thursday by Statistics Canada show industry sales dipped by 0.2 per cent to $129.4 million from $129.7 million in the final month of 2012.

It was the second-smallest decline among the four provinces that posted weaker sales and followed two consecutive months of strengthening revenues.

The Statistics Canada figures also show while January's sales were down from the previous month, they were still 2.6 per cent higher than January 2012's total of $126.2 million.

Nationally, industry sales rose 0.5 per cent from December to January -- $4.5 billion versus $4.48 billion -- and were up 4.7 per cent from a year earlier.

The food-services and drinking-places industries includes full-service restaurants, limited-service restaurants, drinking places and special food-services operations.

The latter sector includes food-service contractors, caters and mobile food services.
