Key Market Issues
Nicaragua has been a country in which most consumers drink rum such as Flor de Caña and, consequently, brewers see these as the main competitor brands.
Political instability, however, remains a threat due to the perceived unpredictable behaviour of President Daniel Ortega.
Consumption per capita still remains low, but there is a lot of opportunity to stimulate growth.
Nicaragua is an undeveloped market in terms of innovation.
On-premise is expected to lose share towards off-premise, as consumers prefer to purchase their products at more economical prices and consume at their own homes.
Even though inflation meant higher prices, beer consumption in Nicaragua had a positive growth.
Imports of beer continue to maintain a positive trend, growing higher than the overall category. Most imports come from Guatemala, where AmBev has located its plant, from which it exports products such as Brahva and Brahva Beats to Nicaragua.
Traditional stores remain as an important distribution channel, followed by large modern retail.
Most of the beers sold in Nicaragua are from mainstream brands.
