BMI View: Our consumer outlook for Italy will continue to brighten over the next quarters, with household spending supported by low inflation levels and employment growth. As a result, sales of food and drink will return to positive territory. Nonetheless, we caution that growth across the sector will remain modest, due to existing high levels of consumption and unfavourable demographic dynamics.
