Qualified Target Audience.
We are Canada’s biggest influencer in the gluten-free community, reaching over 95+ thousand gluten-free consumers each month across our media platforms. The North American gluten-free food market is the fastest growing food intolerance category estimated to reach $9.99 billion USD by 2028 at a CAGR of 9.29% from 2021-2028. Canada is the country with the greatest increase and prevalence (35%) of celiac disease in the past decades. One third of Canadians, approximately 10 million people, are looking for gluten free foods – can you afford to miss this opportunity?
Not only is this a growing market but it is highly engaged – ready to discover new products and share with their fellow community members.
People living with dietary restrictions are extremely brand loyal. Once they have identified a brand as safe, they will stick with it, even if it means visiting multiple stores on a weekly basis.
