Gabon Food and Drink Report Q4 2015

Gabon Food and Drink Report Q4 2015

BMI View: The prospects for the food and drink industry are impacted by Gabon's small population,particularly relative to its regional peers, presenting limited opportunities for large-scale expansion of thefood and drink industry. Premiumisation will have to play a more important role in driving growth. Gabonhas a very immature retail market, which restricts the spread of branded food and drink products. Foreigninvestment prospects in this area remain limited due to poor logistics, a lack of affordable and good-qualityreal estate and an unattractive business environment. We forecast that Gabon's real GDP growth will slowto 4.5% in 2015, compared to an estimated expansion of 5.4% in 2014. Private consumption will remain thekey growth driver, although the fall in oil prices - and its effect on government spending - poses downsiderisks to this.
