Argentina Food & Drink Report

Argentina's struggling economy, plagued by high inflation and ongoing currency devaluation, will continue to have a negative impact on the country's food and drink sector. After considerable sales decline (in USD terms) in 2014, the industry is expected to enter the path of slow recovery throughout the rest of our forecast period to 2018. Nonetheless, the improvement will be negligible in 2015 with the risks lying firmly to the downside.
