Recent Study: Colombia Food & Drink Report Q4 2014

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Sep 17 2014

Investor interest in Colombia has picked up in recent years, with key examples including the move by Portugal's leading food retailer, Jerónimo Martins, to target Co lombia ahead of other countries such as Argentina and Brazil. We forecast strong real private consumption growth in 2014 and 2015 as a two-year long household delever aging cycle comes to an end . W hile household spending growth has moderated since peaking in late 2011, we believe that improving labour dynamics, combined with record low interest rates, will drive a re-acceleration in private consumption growth in 2014.

Starbucks To Face Challenges In Colombia : Starbucks' decision to open their first flagship store in Colombia in July 2014 indicates that the company sees strong upside potential for domestic coffee consumption, outweighing challenges linked to competition in the country. However, we believe the company's success will depend on its price strategy and long-term support of local farmers .
