The food market in Africa and the Middle East is constantly evolving with new trends influencing consumer habits; this can be capitalized on by food manufacturers looking to appealing to the changing eating habits of consumers in the region. Some of the most important trends include: convenience, clear labeling, ethical consumerism and escapism and relaxation.

Key Findings

  • Saudi Arabia is the one of largest food markets in volume and value terms among the countries analyzed. This can be attributed to its population size and relatively high income.
  • Fast industrialization, urbanization and Westernization in the region are changing the food landscape. The average consumer lifestyle is rapidly evolving, which is leading to increased demand for convenient food options which facilitate hectic schedules balancing work and home commitments.
  • The food market in the region is becoming far more diverse and fragmented than in previous years due to globalization and immigration, this is leading to ever more demanding palates of experiential consumers.
