About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • As with other non-essential categories, pasta will continue to benefit from approved free trade agreements, which will keep facilitating manufacturers and distributors to increase their product portfolios (as Roma Prince SA has been able to with its imported alternatives) while permitting new competitors to enter. This has resulted in more differentiating alternatives being available, eg the widespread Zara’s portfolio, an innovative and deeply segmented high-end range, which has successfully aligned itself with the major health trends. Under such a scenario, locally manufactured standard brands have opted for modernisation (following the main new product development trends) and premiumisation, not only to attract the attention of high-end segments (which are being captured by international brands) but also to fulfil mid-income consumers’ needs, through further levels of dynamism.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Roma Prince SA will remain as the leader of pasta in Costa Rica during 2014, accounting for 57% of retail value sales. The local manufacturer benefits from the strong positioning of its popular brand Pastas Roma, which has been the main pasta reference for a broad base of consumers throughout many decades. Roma Prince’s economies of scale have allowed it to develop efficient production systems and distribution networks, in turn consolidating its positioning with the easy-to-cook Prince brand and other imported added-value products (gnocchi and filled pasta). Distribuidora Lucema SA will hold a 14% value share in 2014, thanks to its perceived quality and competitive unit prices offered by its wide pasta portfolio (more than 27 products), which takes advantage of the company’s consolidated distribution platform, and includes imported brands for different categories (from hair care to oils and fats).

PROSPECTS

  • New product development in the forecast period is likely to keep focusing on dietary suitability, natural ingredients and convenience, with local manufacturers making efforts to combine innovation and competitive unit prices. In the same line, claims such as no additives/preservatives, wholegrain, organic and gluten-free are expected to keep penetrating the category with an interesting base of consumers gradually changing their consumption habits while being more willing to pay additional prices.
