There are two different types of shoppers in South Africa, one who can buy in bulk to save money, and another who buys smaller pack sizes because that is all they can afford. Despite their different shopping preferences, all consumers are price-conscious and look for ways to save money.
Given that many consumers have falling disposable incomes, now more than ever before they will seek out more affordable alternatives to the mainstream sugar confectionery brands available. Cheap imported sugar confectionery products provide a suitable alternative, due to their lower price point.
The rising incidence of obesity and heart disease is causing increased concern for the South African government, given the burden on an already constrained healthcare system. Current legislation is under review to determine how to ensure proper nutrition and less reliance on ultra-processed foods.
