Value of the South African Confectionery Market


The value of the South African confectionery market is between R11bn and R12bn with chocolate confectionery accounting for approximately half of this total. Locally the market share of the three main chocolate manufacturers, multinationals Mondelez South Africa, Tiger Brands and Nestlé has contracted as a result of the increasing popularity of premium and handmade chocolates. Meanwhile the sugar confectionery sub-sector is dominated by two regional companies, Candy Tops and Trade Kings


Global strategies


Multinationals in South Africa are following global strategies of improving efficiencies in their supply chains. This includes improving economies of scale, which often entails selling off non-core brands to small independent companies. The global trend of centralising production is also having an effect on the local manufacturing industry.
