We remain broadly optimistic in our outlook for the Central American consumer (covering the markets of Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica and El Salvador), despite the downside risks posed by the global economic uncertaintly and the increased security risks in parts of the region. Further development of organised retail will allow for a degree of premiumisation to take place, with discounters expected to outperform.

Headline Industry Data (regional averages)

2012 per capita food consumption (US$) = +5.0%; forecast to 2016 = +26.9%
2012 alcoholic drink sales (litres) = +6.3%; forecast to 2016 = +35.4%
2012 soft drink sales (litres) = +5.6% ; forecast to 2016 = +31.4%
2012 MGR sales (US$) = +5.9%; forecast to 2016 = +33.6%

Key Company Trends

Coca-Cola Trials Biogradable Bags in El Salvador: In July 2012, US beverage company The Coca-Cola Company successfully trialled biodegradable bottle-shaped plastic bags for its flagship brand Coke in El Salvador and subsequently in neighbouring countries, according to Beverage Daily. Street vendors had been selling the drink in plastic bags as consumers didn’t want to pay extra for the returnable glass bottle. Coca-Cola designed the new bags in the contour bottle shape to recover its brand image and save consumers money.

Costa Rica Starts Exports of Milk to Venezuela: In a move signalling the return to strength of the Costa Rican dairy industry, exports of milk to Venezuela were shipped in June 2012. The Dos Pinos Cooperative of Milk Producers is expecting to export 240 containers of UHT milk, worth some US$5mn, with further expansion of volumes likely to occur given rising demand in Venezuela.

Key Risks To Outlook

Multifold Risks: In addition to violence and the overreliance on the US for remittances and demand for exports, Central American countries also remain at risk due to the factors such as the pervasive nature of corruption, a function of the region’s weak institutional capacity, combined with massive income inequality and a broader culture of clientelism. Poor and uneven economic development will keep demand for redistributive policies strong, and this will continue to clash with what in many cases is much-needed fiscal retrenchment. A final factor that will continue to blight Central America – exacerbating the aforementioned challenges – is natural disasters, including flooding, drought, earthquakes and in some cases volcanoes. Add to this a weak fiscal and institutional framework to deal with any fallout, and we expect natural disasters to continue derailing broader developmental goals.
