In 2022, staple foods will see an improved performance in comparison with 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic finally coming to an end. In line with the economic reopening and tourism resuming, demand has improved.
In 2022, staple foods in Cambodia is seeing a much better performance than in the past two years due to the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. As of recent, there have been no new cases of the virus which has led to the full reopening of economic activities.
There are three main meals eaten per day in Cambodia: Breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, many rural workers will not eat a full breakfast and will instead snack on fruit before having an early lunch.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, there have been adverse effects across the globe such as challenged healthcare systems, stunned economics, and disrupted education, which has resulted in many to lose their job. As a result, thousands of Cambodian migrant workers have returned home to avoid facing unemployment abroad, which means that there is a young and fruitful workforce now in the country, which will help recover the economy post pandemic.
Rural road infrastructure remains poor, with most rural roads unpaved and subject to frequent flooding, especially during the rainy season that runs from May to October. Despite these challenges, the country’s road infrastructure is improving, although a sharp increase in traffic has also had a negative impact on rural roads.
Over the forecast period, staple foods will see an improved performance as the COVID-19 pandemic comes to a complete end. Likewise, domestic production is set to improve thanks to the availability of raw materials, technological adoption, and ongoing support from the government, which will also help boost the performance of the category in the coming years.
