Manufacture of Pasta
The South African pasta manufacturing industry is estimated at approximately 100,000 tons in 2017. Based on the value of Tiger Brands’ Fatti’s and Moni’s dry pasta market share, the dry pasta segment of the industry is valued at R4bn in 2017. Other major pasta manufacturing segments include fresh pasta, ready-made meals and noodles, with the latter accounting for R960m in 2017.
State of The Industry
Pasta remains a relatively small segment of the food industry. South African consumption of 1.9kg of pasta per person yearly compares with 60kg of maize and 56.76kg of wheat. Urbanisation, a growing middle class, product innovation and convenience have been driving the growth of the sector. However, industry players report extremely tough trading conditions, volume pressure and a competitive pricing environment. Manufacturers indicate that increasing cheap imports remain the single largest threat, while other challenges include increases in input costs, low economic growth affecting disposable income and intensified competition.
