Botswana Food, Drink & MGR Industry Analyzed in New BMI Report Published at

LONDON – At large, the outlook for Botswana's food, drink and mass grocery retail (MGR) industry is not so rosy as that for the wider Sub-Saharan African region over the forecast period to 2016. In the midst of solid mining-led economic upturn in the country, private consumption growth in 2012 and 2013 will be lower than expected – close to 5.5%, under the influence of factors like base effects, unemployment levels and muted wage growth, among others.

By the end of 2016, per capita food consumption in Botswana is forecast to increase by an annual average of 8.2%. Beer sales volumes are likely to grow by an average of 2.8% annually over the forecast period, which is still well below the regional average. Close to 40% of grocery retail sales in the country are accounted for by the organized sector, which is comfortably ahead of most regional markets, although it does still allow room for solid growth. By end-2016, annual mass grocery retail sales growth is expected to average 11%.

New market study “Botswana Food and Drink Report Q2 2012” drawn up by Business Monitor International (BMI) provides true and unbiased insights into the food and drink industry, and the mass grocery retail market in Botswana. The study features the country’s business environment and macroeconomic outlook, demographic forecast, offers historic data and five-year forecasts for the three sectors, as well as provides risk-reward rating for investors.
