MOST PROMISING MARKETS IN AFRICA
The Total Value of Grocery is the sum of the two core channels
Modern Grocery Retail (supermarkets, etc), and
Traditional Grocery Retail (traditional kiosks, etc)
When Modern Grocery Retail represents 25% or more of the Total Value of Grocery, retailers can safely assume that Modern Grocery Retail is appealing to BOTH high income and middle-income consumers.
Normally, any less than 25% of the Total Value of Grocery, it tends to only be upper-income consumers shopping in a Modern Trade Supermarket. 25%+ shows that the upper income and middle-income classes are active buyers.
Which means, at 25%+ the market becomes very interesting for Private Label Manufacturers, who can target BOTH high income and middle-income consumers in Supermarkets.
Dynamic environmental factors influence consumers changing preferences. Private Label & Licencing Middle East serves the perfect platform to explore growing market opportunities for retailers, SMEs and product developers to launch their value-added and cost effective brands.
