Venezuela Food & Drink Report

BMI View: I n view of the substantial headwinds facing the Venezuelan economy, the country's real GDP is likely to contract by 2. 0 % in 2014 and grow by only 0.8 % in 2015. Despite enormous natural resource wealth, the economy's outlook will continue to be dimmed by poor macroeconomic governance, high inflation, low oil prices and significant political uncertainty. Furthermore, we expect household consumption to continue to be constrained by high inflation, which has substantially eroded purchasing power (we forecast headline CPI price growth rising to 60.8% year-on-year in 2014), as well as government price controls, which create market inefficiencies that significantly reduce productivity (and, by extension, incomes) .

Headline Industry Data (US dollar terms):

  • Per capita food consumption compound annual growth rate (CAGR) forecast 2013 to 2018 = -2.8%.

  • Alcoholic drink sales CAGR forecast 2013 to 2018 = +16.0%.

  • Soft drink sales CAGR forecast 2013 to 2018 = +16.0%.

  • Mass grocery retail sales CAGR forecast 2013 to 2018 = -1.4%.

The weather during the planting and growing season of the main corn crop (winter) was drier than usual, leading to below-par yields.
