Kenya Food and Drink Report Q1 2013
The improving macroeconomic environment in Kenya will provide a fillip to private consumption, which our Africa team believes will be the engine of accelerating economic activity. Not only will falling inflation improve consumers' purchasing power, but lower interest rates will also give a boost to private household borrowers – the group with the second largest share of outstanding credit after businesses involved in trade activities.
The Kenyan consumer-facing sectors are showing tremendous long-term promise. Although Kenya is not clearly distinguishable from its neighbours Tanzania and Uganda in terms of GDP per capita, Kenya’s consumer sector is significantly more developed than these countries. The domestic food and drink processing industry is much stronger, and internal trade systems are more developed, with organised grocery retail outlets much more widespread.
Following a challenging two-year period over 2008 and 2009, as post-election violence and then a sluggish economy weighed on private consumption after a period of accelerated growth, Kenya is much more integrated into the global economy than the rest of the East African Community (EAC). Kenya is the EAC’s economic hub and its most developed consumer market.
Our positive outlook for Kenya is also backed up by the fact that we believe companies can more efficiently reach the end-consumer market in comparison with Tanzania and Uganda. Internal trade systems are stronger, with mass grocery retail contributing an estimated 5% to consolidated grocery sales compared with a non-Kenyan East African average of about 1%.
