Cooking ingredients in Qatar continue to perform well in 2022, namely due to their essential disposition among households regardless of disposable income. Some other factors that continue to ongoing demand include population growth and more specifically in 2022 the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and the FIFA World Cup.
In 2022, agricultural activities in Qatar continue to grow, meaning that the country still heavily relies on other countries for food imports, in fact, imports contribute to around 80% of total food products. As a result, food quality and safety play a crucial role in the supply and demand of imported food.
Sales of cooking ingredients and meals increased during 2020 and 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The high numbers of expatriates among the population of Qatar, with more than 80% of the country’s residents being expatriates at the start of 2020, mean that there is demand of all sorts of products across various categories of cooking ingredients, including numerous different types of cooking sauces, table sauces and edible oils, among other products, and increased as consumers demand high volumes of them.
Qatar is mostly an urbanized country with more than 99% population living in urban areas. The agriculture, and the production of food items in the country, have been majorly import-dependent.
In order to meet rising demand, new players emerged to offer grocery delivery services, including Snoonu and Talabat, among others. Qatar is one of the richest countries in the world and this meant that significant investment was possible in the infrastructure required to rapidly develop mass logistics for the delivery of groceries, not only in the country’s capital but also in other emerging cities such as Lusail.
Over the forecast period, the sales of cooking ingredients will rise due to the increase in population in Qatar, alongside the increase in expatriates, especially as many return in line with the pandemic coming to an end. Likewise, the Qatar 2030 vision as made it possible for large investments which allows new products to contribute to growth in the country’s industries.
