2022 saw a variety of interesting trends influence Cameroon’s cooking ingredients and meals industry. In the key category of edible oils, the gap between the output of primary producers and the input needs of secondary refiners continues to widen significantly, resulting in structural deficits in the production of edible oils throughout the country.
SCR Mayor and Cie remains the leading player in edible oils due to its vast production capacity of 1,000 tonnes of refined palm oil per day, a substantial improvement on the 700 tonnes per day it was producing in previous years. The upgrading of its production facilities has helped the company to significantly increase its production output and consolidate its leading position in edible oils.
Overall small local grocers remains the leading channel for sales of cooking ingredients and meals in Cameroon. The sheer number of retailers operating in this channel and the proximity of the stores to the homes and workplaces of many consumers remain the two major factors underpinning the dominance of small local grocers in the retail distribution of cooking ingredients and meals.
The significant increases that are expected to be seen in local production output across all categories of edible oils during the forecast period are expected to improve the availability of these products and drive down unit prices, with volume sales expected to increase significantly as a result. Domestic production of crude palm oil is slated to increase significantly over the forecast period, especially as key producer CDC is expected to no longer be handicapped by the economic crises that have been seen in many parts of the world towards the end of the review period.
