At the end of the review period, foodservice volume sales of edible oils had not yet returned to pre-pandemic levels. The main reason for the failure of Uruguay’s consumer foodservice industry to rebound robustly once COVID-19 control measures were finally lifted was the circumspect and cautious approach to spending that prevailed among the population of Uruguay as high inflation set in and purchasing power came under pressure.
Local edible oils manufacturer Cía Oleaginosa Uruguaya SA (COUSA) is expected to remain the leading name in the category throughout forecast period and it is unlikely that this major producer and distributor of various types available oils will face any serious challenge to its very strong position in the category. Despite the recent move by the government of Uruguay to eliminate customs duties for imported soy oil and sunflower oil, COUSA’s position is so strong that the erosion of the price advantage that its brands enjoy against imported rivals is unlikely to make any huge difference to sales of its edible oils.
The forecast period is expected to see olive oil register a particularly dynamic sales performance in Uruguay. This is set to be mainly because of the strong development of local brands, with domestic olive oil production expected to continue rising for the foreseeable future.
