The consumption of processed foods and beverages is steadily rising: In 2013 nearly 25 million tons of packaged foods were sold in Nigeria, an increase of over 30 percent compared to 2008. Sales volume of soft drinks increased by 170% and amounted to 11.7 billion litres.
A population of over a billion - and among these 300 million middle class consumers - make up an immense domestic market. As a result, food and beverages products are the largest consumption category in Nigeria. Expenditures on processed and packaged food are growing steadily. At the moment, consumption is weakening somewhat as the result of the current economic situation; however, the growth prospects for food processing and beverage production in India remain good. The Boston Consulting Group predicts an increase of expenditure for processed foods and beverages in India from 40 billion to $ 180 billion by 2020.
Rising incomes are expected to stimulate sales growth. The same goes for the opening up the multi-brand retail business for foreign direct investment (up to 51%), a decision only recently made, which is bound to pave the way for investment in supermarkets and hypermarkets.
