Manufacture of Bakery Products


Bread is the second most important provider of energy in the national diet after maize products. While bread consumption in South Africa increased slightly in 2020, the South African Chamber of Baking said that the pandemic will likely result in a switch to other staples such as maize meal. While the manufacture of baked goods is a growing industry in South Africa, the pandemic has led to a number of artisanal bakeries shutting. Bigger bakeries have mostly benefited from consumers stocking up during the pandemic. However the industry is facing increasing costs, including higher flour prices, and the possible introduction of inspection services for the wheat sector, which could lead to higher bread prices.


Imports


South Africa imports more than 40% of its wheat requirements. Wheat production in the farming year to end June 2021 is expected to reach a 19-year high following favourable weather conditions in the Western Cape. While this will result in lower imports, the bread price will likely not come down as wheat prices are largely dependent on developments in the global market and on domestic currency movements.


Opportunities for SMEs and Entrepreneurs


The bakery industry is seen by government as a growth industry as baked goods are sold by all food retail outlets. While big companies dominate the industry, there are opportunities for entrepreneurs to start local community or home-based bakeries. Bakery equipment for startup bakeries is available from a number of suppliers of new and reconditioned equipment.
