Kuwait Food & Drink Report

BMI View: Growth in Kuwait's food and drink industry will be driven by the gradual formalisation of the retail sector and a rapidly growing population over our forecast period to 2019. That said, opportunities for substantial growth will remain limited by the small market size and already high per capita consumer spending on food and drink items.

Headline Industry Data

  • Total food consumption (local currency) year-on-year (y-o-y) growth in 2015: +2.8%; compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 2014-2019: +2.9%

  • Per capita food consumption (local currency) y-o-y growth in 2015: -0.2%; CAGR 2014-2019: +0.4%

  • Bottled water volume (litres) y-o-y sales growth in 2015: +4.1%; CAGR 2014-2019: +4.0%

  • Total mass grocery retail sales (local currency) y-o-y growth in 2015: +3.2%; CAGR 2014-2019: +3.2%

Key Industry Developments

Aujan Confirms Middle East Investment: Saudi-based Aujan Coca-Cola Beverages Company's decision to invest USD500mn across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), announced in February 2015, will boost the company's position across the region. Aujan is a leading manufacturer of non-carbonated soft drinks in MENA, especially in the fruit juices category. The company revealed its plans to invest USD500mn across the region over the next three years, in order to increase its production capacities and develop new products and packaging formats.

BRF To Acquire Stake In Alyasra's Frozen Foods Distribution : In August 2014, Brazilian poultry meats exporter and dairy products processor BRF entered an agreement to acquire a 75% stake in Kuwait-based Alyasra Food's retail frozen foods distribution business for USD160mn. The move is part of the company's strategy to boost its brands and expand its distribution and product portfolio in the Middle East. After the acquisition, Alyasra will continue to operate as an independent entity and BRF will become the exclusive supplier to Alyasra for the products of its portfolio.
