New Report Available: Venezuela Food & Drink Report Q3 2016

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Jul 07 2016

Venezuela's food, drink and mass grocery retail sectors will contract in real terms over 2016. Our outlook is underpinned by the country's weak economy which we forecast to contract by 6.2% in 2016 - together with high inflation and a weak consumer profile. Lack of currency in the economy will continue to hinder production and import s, exacerbating food shortages. We expect basic food staples, particularly carbohydrates, to perform well as consumers increasingly favour filling and economical foods.
