The agriculture, grains and milling sector in Central-Southern Africa drives the growth of the rest of the economy and industry.
This sector is one of the star performers in the economies of the region by providing nutrition and jobs to a growing population that is fast urbanising; and continues to attract investments from local and international firms to take advantage of rising demand.
Growing demand for dairy products in the region drive investments in processing and packaging of consumer products by local, regional and international dairy giants
Driven by good weather and abundant water, the Southern-Central region offers some of the most compelling investment destinations for those interested in the dairy as improving agricultural prospects drive up milk production.
International brands and local players take advantage of rising demand in the Central Southern Africa region to boost investments in beverages processing and packaging
The beverage industry is probably the most sophisticated sector in Africa’s food and beverage industry, as multinational giants jostle with local players to quench the thirst of a growing consumer base.
Emerging sector that will boost the Central Southern Africa region’s food related industry going forward
Driven by South African based retailers and international franchises of leading restaurants and fast food companies, the Central Southern African region has seen an influx of leading brands to fill the malls that have sprouted in the major, and increasingly, smaller cities across the region.
Fast growing meat, poultry and fish industry to meet rising demand for protein from a young population
The Central Southern African region has a fast growing and increasingly sophisticating meat, poultry and fish production and processing industry.
Baked goods are increasing in importance as sources of nutrition in most Central Southern African countries.
The bakery, biscuits, cookies and snacks category is fast growing in the Central Southern region of Africa driven by an influx of mainly South African based formal retailers including Shoprite and Pick n Pay and rising incomes and urbanisation.
Export oriented industry begins to look inward to meet rising demand in Africa driven by a changing marketplace
The tea and coffee industry in Central Southern Africa region is not as vibrant as that of Eastern Africa, but recent investments for example by the Olam Group in coffee production in Zambia, provide a good indication that the sector still has a good opportunity to help meet rising demand for these hot beverages around the World.
Sector seeking to grow export volumes to meet rising demand in export markets, and meet local demand
The fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices (horticulture) sector in the Central Southern Africa region faces a number of logistical, quality and food safety challenges as it seeks to grow export volumes to the key European Union (EU) and other developed markets.
Vital every-day foods that provide nutrition and convenience to a growing population
The processed food industry is a key pillar to the growth of the food and agro-processing sector in Africa, providing thousands of jobs and income to millions of farmers, distributors and other stakeholders.
The sugar and confectionery industry gears for local and export demand fulfilment and growth
Increasing demand for sugar and confectionery products in the region, as populations increase and urbanisation takes hold within communities in the region plus increasing uptake of processed foods create opportunities for the industry into the long term.
