African Industry Reports: Fresh insights into the food value chain
Mar 25th, 2024

The food and beverage market in Africa is expected to experience significant growth, exceeding $1 trillion by 2030. This surge is fuelled by factors such as a burgeoning population, thriving economies, and the emergence of a wealthier middle class.

Consumers are increasingly seeking diverse and premium-quality products, moving away from traditional staples toward more upscale options. The continent’s food landscape is on the cusp of a major transformation.

Amid this rapid evolution and diversification, companies operating within the Food & Beverage sector face both challenges and opportunities.

The question then arises: where can industry leaders and researchers turn for in-depth sector expertise?

Decision-makers, especially those eyeing the South African and African markets, have long grappled with the difficulty of accessing current, reliable data and insights. Discover African Industry Reports, compiled by Who Owns Whom and offered by Sabinet, created to unravel the intricacies of the food value chain.

An opportunity to build a better, more sustainable Food & Beverage sector in Africa

According to the United Nations, among the 157 Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) investment opportunities, the most prominent target sectors in sub-Sharan Africa are food and beverage, and infrastructure development.

The investment opportunities’ financial and impact potential is significant, with most investment opportunities generating a new positive outcome for stakeholders who would otherwise be underserved.

With agriculture at the core of the continent’s economic transformation, Africa has the potential to become a global agricultural powerhouse and a net exporter of food.
