Health and Wellness

The health and wellness industry has experienced remarkable growth in Canada and around the world in the last decade. Stiff competition and high buy in have made for a unique market that will continue to see significant demand for new and innovative products.

Natural Health Products (NHP), such as vitamins, herbal remedies, and traditional medicines, have become increasingly popular as more research links fortified and nutritional products with decreased risk of several chronic non-communicable diseases.

The global health and wellness market reached approximately $4.9 trillion U.S. in 2022 and is projected to exceed $7.6 trillion U.S. by 2030. Canada’s industry has shown steady growth, at a rate of 4.4 percent between 2017 and 2022. The dietary supplements market is also on the rise and anticipated to reach $278 billion U.S. by 2024.

Unlike the food and beverage sector, health and wellness face difference distinctions and oversight in Canada, leading to regulatory changes across the country aimed at better understanding the market and addressing current issues.

MNP’s industry professionals help clients have a better understanding of the space and business as a whole and know where to look to determine what next steps will help you reach your goals.
