Tanzania Food and Drink Report Q1 2013
Inflation is on the decline in Tanzania and is likely to continue to fall into 2013, according to BMI's Africa team. Meanwhile, decent harvests in the middle of 2012 will put more money in the hands of the many Tanzanians who rely on agriculture for their livelihood. Together, these bode well for consumers' purchasing power.
There is tremendous room for growth on the consumer side in Tanzania. With incomes still low, there are potentially dynamic opportunities on offer for companies that can target the market with low-cost goods. The telecoms sector is a key example of the growth that can be achieved with the right amount of investment, particularly in distribution. Tanzania’s telecoms industry is one of the region’s most competitive, with a host of big hitters jockeying for a share of the market. One reason for telecoms firms' success is that they have been able to invest heavily in distributional infrastructure. In Tanzania and the wider region, getting products to the final consumer is probably the greatest challenge a company will have to overcome.
Much activity remains under the radar across much of the region, where the informal economy accounts for a big chunk of spending. The takeoff in mobile phones over the past decade shows that if the price is right, there are huge opportunities at mass market level, where consumers are willing to embrace new brands.
Moreover, with incomes still low across the region, there are potentially dynamic opportunities on offer for low-cost goods targeting the mass market, and Tanzania is no exception. Demand for basic essentials such as toothpaste and shampoo will grow considerably over the next few years. Again, we highlight that with internal distribution systems in terrible shape, large investments into distribution must be made.
