RCC's Grocery Division was established in 2011 and represents Canada's largest grocery retailers. RCC Grocery members serve Canadians' grocery needs everyday and represent more than 90 per cent of all grocery sales.
Grocers are the storefront to society and serve Canadians through the provision of safe and nutritious food. They build communities through investment in both local economies and through support of a wide variety of charitable initiatives. Grocery retail is a significant source of employment and economic activity; the retail trade and wholesaling of food accounted for 528,000 Canadian jobs or 3.7 per cent of Canadian employment in 2010 and Canadians spent $73.7 billion at supermarkets and other grocery stores in 2010.
RCC's grocery division is a source of information, advice and expertise on all matters affecting food retail, including food safety and recall, labelling, nutrition, health and wellness, product packaging, supply chain issues and environmental stewardship.
