Japan Food & Drink Q4 2020

Japan Food & Drink Q4 2020

Key View:

Japan’s economy is beginning to reopen, following the lifting of the state of emergency, allowing previously restrictedsectors including food services to reopen. We hold the view that the food and non-alcoholic drinks sector is positioned well, as mostgrocery outlets remained open during the state of emergency. Furthermore, as the economic reality of Covid-19 continues to feedthrough to consumers, we expect the prioritisation of food and non-alcoholic drinks purchases to continue. Medium-term growth infood and drink sales will be driven by premiumisation and the Japanese consumer’s prioritisation of quality produce. However,economic downside pressures from the impact of Covid-19-related government interventions will likely drag on growth prospects.
