BMI View: Sudan's food and drink industry will experience modest growth throughout our forecast period
on the back of a more favourable economic outlook; relatively low inflation and low fuel prices. On the
other hand, South Sudan's food and drink industry will experience a deep contraction due to the continued

Key Trends & Industry Developments

? In South Sudan, soaring inflation will continue to erode consumer purchasing power, limiting growth in
the food sector.
? The closure of the only brewery in South Sudan - South Sudan Beverages Limited - will negatively
impact growth in the formal market.
