Perú: ventas totales de la industria de alimentos procesados alcanzaron US$ 7,8 billion en 2018
According to Peru’s Society of National Industries (SNI) Peru’s food-processing sector grew 14.1 percent in 2018.This growth is boosted principally by an excellent performance in the fisheries sector. Other sectors to highlight are milling, meat products, and dairy. This dynamic sector accounts for almost 22 percent of the nation’s industrial GDP.However, over 90 percent of the industry are mainly micro-companies and 1.7 percent are large companies. Sales of the food-processing sector reached $7.8 billion in 2018.
Peru’s Central Bank (BCR) forecasts a four percent GDP growth in 2019 mainly driven by a rebound on commodities exports and private investment.This scenario will fuel opportunities for growth in the food-manufacturing sector.Growth in this sector is directly linked to the development of food retail and food service sectors throughoutPeru.As supermarket and hypermarket operators continue to expand their networks throughout the country, they will likely also expand their private label brands into new product categories. The two criteria retailers use when looking to launch new products are quick rotation and profit per unit.
Food product manufacturers in Peru source both domestic and imported product ingredients to meet consumer demand for quality food at affordable prices.These manufacturers are successfully tailoring products to meet different segments of consumer demand. For instance, the health food and vending machine segments are growing to meet the respective demands of health conscious and time starved consumers.
