Dublin, Oct. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Manufacture of Bakery Products in South Africa 2019" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Manufacture of Bakery Products:
Bread is the second most important staple food in South Africa after maize meal. With the price of maize products decreasing following a good maize harvest, many people reverted to maize meal, resulting in bread consumption in South Africa declining slightly since May 2018. The manufacture of baked goods is a growing industry, and artisanal and in-store bakeries are on the increase. Higher-income consumers have variety and health requirements, while there are opportunities for emerging bakers to enter local informal markets.

Rising Prices: From April 2017 to April 2019, the prices of 700g loaves only increased by 2.7% for white bread and 2.95% for brown, according to the South African Chamber of Baking. But more recent consumer price inflation figures show significant price increases. July 2019 inflation statistics indicate that bread and cereal prices increased by 7.9% year-on-year, while August figures showed an 8.6% increase, contributing to upward inflationary pressure. Some of the major retailers continue to subsidise bread loaves to make bread affordable to financially-stressed customers.
