SIAL Food Hub and Canadian Grocer present: Authenticity in Multiculturalism

The multicultural food market is booming in Canada. Research shows it is expanding by about 14% annually, and 16% of Canadian consumers buy ethnic food weekly. That number jumps to 35% when you zoom in on Ontario consumers. And about 70% of the growth in Canadian consumer spending will come from visible minorities.

As if running two wildly popular Vancouver restaurants, starring on shows like Dragons’ Den and authoring best-selling cookbooks isn’t enough, chef Vikram Vij and his partner, Meeru, are also the creators of a growing product line of signature curries that are sold across Canada. How did this energetic celebrity chef make the transition to producing the Vij’s at home meal line? Join Vij for an inspiring talk on building success through authenticity and passion.

2:30 – 3:30 p.m.|Panel – NEW Canadian Grocer Research
