Demand for edible oils is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period, with a reversal of the negative retail volume growth registered in the category during the review period likely to be seen. Population growth and the rising numbers of people among Cameroon’s urban middle-class are set to be the main reasons for the expansion of demand for edible oils and although per capita consumption of palm oil is already quite high, there is still plenty of room for further growth.
Despite the strong preference among most Cameroonians for imported products across a wide range of product categories, this preference for imported brands does not apply to edible oils. However, in the past many locally manufactured products suffered from a reputation for poor quality, while the prices of higher quality local brands tend to be very high resulting in local edible oils having a negative image as representing poor value for money.
The Cameroonian edible oil is dominated by the palm oil segment as that is likely to remain the case for a very long time. However, this market is already mature and consumers are increasingly looking for added value for money.
