Delivery mobile apps like Glovo, Rappi and Uber Eats have become mainstream in Peru’s main cities, increasing the ease with which consumers can order takeaway food to eat at home. In addition, levels of eating out are also increasing.
Among the 10 most common illnesses in Peru are diarrhoea, gastritis and gastroenteritis, which are infections and inflammation of the digestive system. This is why it is important that the population learn to adopt habits of prevention such as good hygiene, healthy eating and regular hand washing before dining or cooking as a key way to prevent stomach ailments that lead to health problems linked to the lack of good nutrition.
Festivities such as Christmas and New Year increase the consumption of digestive remedies due to the intake of more fat, alcohol and carbohydrates. In summer, digestive diseases also increase because high temperatures modify the chemical composition of food, and this favours the appearance of harmful microorganisms such as salmonella or E coli.
GSK Consumer Healthcare’s Sal de Andrews antacid product remained the leading brand in digestive remedies in Peru in 2019. The product is available as Sal de Andrews regular with lemon flavour and triple action and it is effective in relieving digestive problems like heartburn as well as headaches.
Players in laxatives are increasingly looking to expand their offer and innovate with natural additives and more herbal alternatives. Some example of this are the companies Merck and Sanofi, with the development of probiotic products.
Tea companies could reach more consumers by identifying niches, with digestive remedies being a potentially interesting one. Players such as Wawasana and Sunka already have digestive options in their ranges that are sold exclusively in convenience stores and supermarkets.
