BMI View: We have a subdued outlook on Kuwait's food and drink industry , with mass grocery retail forecast to perform moderately over our forecast period of 2014-2019 . Investment in the sector is limited by a small population size as well as the dominance of government-backed UCCS. Nonetheless, high disposable income levels and increasing health awareness in the region will increase food consumption as well as soft drinks growth.
