Product categories are listed in descending order based on the amount of subsidy; the category that received the highest amount of subsidy is listed first, followed by the category that received the second highest amount of subsidy, and so on. Numbers in the table are preliminary. Values are subject to change.

This chart shows what percentage of the total subsidy transfer between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018 was applied to specific product categories. Because non-prescription drugs and country foods shipped from registered northern processing plants received less than 1% of the subsidy transfer these categories are not shown in the chart. The chart is based on data in the table above.
