OTTAWA—Facing political anxiety in Liberal ranks and affordability concerns from the broader population, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a swing at big grocery store chains on Thursday, warning that Ottawa is ready to take action against them if they don’t rein in rising food prices.

Speaking at the close of his party’s caucus retreat in London, Ont., Trudeau credited his Liberal MPs for the government’s decision to summon the heads of major grocery companies to Ottawa next week to discuss how they will “stabilize” food prices as they rake in record profits.
