Hot drinks registered double-digit value growth in 2021, as it did in 2020. However, part of this value growth was driven by price rises, though volume growth was still healthy.
Despite Cameroon being among the top ten global coffee producers and one of only a few countries which grows both Arabic and Robusta coffee, the consumption of fresh coffee remains relatively low. A significant portion of the harvest is exported to Europe and a further 80% of the remaining crop is exported to neighbouring African countries.
Both multinational and local well-known players continue to benefit from consumer loyalty to their well-established brands in 2021. Nestlé leads in coffee with its instant coffee brand, Nescafé, while fresh coffee offers a more fragmented competitive landscape comprised of domestic producers led by UCCAO Cameroun with its brand, Café Uccao.
COVID-19 led to a slight uptick in sales through e-commerce as consumers sought to avoid going to public spaces. However, e-commerce’s overall share among sales channels in hot drinks in Cameroon remained negligible.
There was an uplift in foodservice channels in 2021, as society opened up after the lockdown in 2020. This particularly benefitted tea, as a larger portion of tea is fold through foodservice channels than for coffee or other hot drinks.
It is anticipated that hot drinks sales will grow over the forecast period in Cameroon. The country enjoys a strong coffee culture in which fresh ground coffee dominates, a trend that is predicted to continue into the forecast period.
