Tailandia: US$ 116 mil millones alcanzan las ventas de alimentos para el sector Retail
Prior to COVID-19 pandemic, the Thai Retailers Association reported that Thailand’s retail sector in 2019 expanded by 2.8 percent, with a total value of approximately U.S. $116 billion. The growth of the Thai retail industry has been largely driven by economic growth, coupled with a growing young, middle-income population with higher disposable
incomes and a greater propensity to spend, and a trend towards urbanization. The number of food retail outlets continues to grow with over 18,000 convenience store and supermarket locations.
Changes in the structure of Thai households and the pandemic have led to changes in how Thais eat with a rising demand for convenient ready-to-eat meals, healthy food products, and food delivery.
Best prospective foods are:
health foods (natural derived, clean foods, health snacks); health beverages (natural ingredients, functional drinks); ready to eat foods; frozen meals, food delivery; Halal foods; food for aging populations; organic foods; vegetarian foods; plant protein-based products; and processed seafood.
