Wholesale and Retail of Food in Angola


The wholesale and retail of food in Angola contributes over 18% to GDP and, including the large informal market, creates over 1.7 million jobs. Heavy investment in supermarkets and shopping malls saw the formal market share of food sales increase from less than 5% in 2000 to between 20% and 30% in 2019. But expansion has slowed since 2016.


Small Formal Sector


The food trade in Angola remains dominated by informal channels, with open-air markets, small traditional stores, and street vendors accounting for between 70% and 80% of the market. Formal wholesalers and retailers operate fewer than 200 stores. The grocery market is still far from mature, and represents a significant growth opportunity.


Multiple Challenges


The grocery market has been seriously affected by the recession as employment, consumer spending, and middle-class growth are closely tied to economic performance, and dependent on the oil sector. Risks from industry players are exacerbated by Angola’s reliance on food imports as foreign exchange shortages and exchange rate volatility can have a significant effect on food inflation, input prices, and the cost of rental space. Many large retailers have struggled to maintain their full product range and have had to subsidise food prices, undermining their profits. Poor infrastructure complicates supply chains and constrains store expansion beyond key cities.
