No socioeconomic changes have been recorded in 2022 due to Kuwait having a very high GDP per capita which means expenditure on staple foods remains strong. Likewise, the government’s heavy substitution for locals means consumers can always afford staple foods, regardless of the economic backdrop, such as the worldwide inflation currently taking place.
There are no infrastructure problems in Kuwait, with all types of retailers accessible by road or by foot. There are many retailers that range in size from small corner stores to large hypermarkets.
Strong growth is expected to be seen in staple foods over the forecast period, mainly due to the essentiality of products such as bread, pasta, and rice. As these products are consumed by households of all income levels, the economic backdrop will not have much of an impact on the demand and consumption for such products.
