A report says the average Canadian family will pay about 400 dollars more for groceries next year due to the rising price of food.
And that same family will shell out about 150 dollars more for dining out.
Researchers from Guelph and Dalhousie Universities say food prices are expected to rise by up to 3.5 percent in 2019.
Vegetables are expected to see the biggest price jumps, while meat and seafood prices are expected to fall.
The report says there is an oversupply of meat and greater demand — especially among young people — for veggies.
