Wholesale and retail of food products
The wholesale and retail food trade in South Africa is dominated by national supermarket chains which play an important role in shaping the entire South African food system. Large corporations have benefited from nearly three decades of a rapidly growing middle class, the development of centralized distribution and the application of new supply chain and logistics technologies, and the rapid growth of shopping malls .
Food retailing, which accounts for more than half of all retail sales in South Africa, is defined by a nationwide high quality food supply, market concentration and maturity. National supermarket chains and their development have also had a fundamental impact on the shape and functioning of the upstream food wholesale and food and agricultural processing industries.
Resilience and challenges
The strength and resilience of the food retail industry to adequately supply South Africa was evident during the pandemic and widespread unrest in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng in July 2021, despite trade disruption , ownership, stock levels, and supply lines.
The vulnerability of the industry, however, has translated into the challenge of weakening consumer purchasing power and supply saturation in supermarkets and shopping malls in major urban areas. This saturation has driven retailers to invest in Africa and in smaller towns, rural areas and townships in South Africa. The results of this expansion have been mixed.
The rapid increase in online food shopping and delivery has been a major feature of the industry over the past year, as food e-commerce has accelerated dramatically. South African food retailers have also aggressively pursued convenience markets such as forecourts and increased private label foods in terms of range and sales. The difficulties of certain countries on the African continent have led large retailers to reconsider their investments in certain markets.
