South Africa: Food Processing Ingredients

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SF2023-0009

This report provides more information on the South African food processing sector, including strategies for U.S. exporters interested in entering the market. South Africa is a middle-income emerging market with a well-developed agribusiness and food sector that plays a significant role in job creation and economic growth. Although largely self-sufficient in agricultural production, South Africa is a net importer of food ingredients. The country has an advanced food processing sector with more than 1,800 firms, which drives strong demand for food ingredients, an estimated 90 percent of which must be imported. The United States is already a reputable exporter of food ingredients to South Africa, and diverse opportunities exist to expand U.S. food ingredients exports in a wide range of categories.
