This is a very cool website for exploring a wide range of topics including experimental estimates of organic fruit and vegetable production, food insecurity before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, household food consumption and Canadian greenhouse gas emissions, etc, etc.
With 91 entries a lot of ground is covered! I just thought it was a great resource depending on one’s interests. For example, I’m interested in bees and honey so found the entry on production and value of honey informative.
In Alberta, the largest honey-producing province, production fell 35.0% to 25.1 million pounds, the lowest level in the province since 2000. Production was also down in Manitoba (-1.9%) and Saskatchewan (-1.4%). Since 2000, about four-fifths of the annual honey production in Canada has come from these three Prairie provinces. For the group, I thought some relevant entries were: Environment Fact Sheets: Household food consumption and Canadian greenhouse gas emissions In 2015, Canadian households were responsible for 42% of Canada's total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including both the direct emissions related to household fuel use (44%) and the indirect emissions related to household spending on goods and services (56%).
A new analysis released in Environment Fact Sheets shows that indirect emissions associated with household spending on food and beverages accounted for a quarter of these indirect emissions and were a top source of GHG emissions after indirect emissions associated with household energy consumption. Food availability The food available for consumption in Canada in 2019 suggests growing consumer demand for healthier food options, leading to the higher availability of a variety of fruits, vegetables and poultry, and the lower availability of sugar and processed foods and drinks.
In March 2020, the food available for consumption in Canada began to change in the wake of COVID-19. The data released today will provide a valuable benchmark to better understand the evolving food market throughout 2020.
Food availability is the amount of food that is physically present in a country for human consumption. I've included excerpts to give a taste of the kind of info the entries include. I hope this helps!
This is a lot of data to wade through. Was there something in particular that you wanted to call our attention to?
