The Manufacture of Pasta in South Africa


While the performance of the pasta industry is influenced by the economy and financial well-being of consumers, both of which are under increasing pressure since the onset of the pandemic, pasta demand has grown as consumers stocked up on dry foods. Sales of ready-to-eat pasta meals are growing, driven by higher income consumers, but the segment still remains small.


Trade


South Africa is a net importer of pasta. Some industry players say pasta importers are taking advantage of a regulatory misalignment that enables them to import pasta from the EU and other Southern African Customs Union members at lower prices than local manufacturers can offer. Between 2014 and 2020, dry pasta imports have recorded double-digit growth in all but two years and are on track to grow similarly in 2021. Exports grew by just 0.2% in 2020. An anti-dumping determination in March 2021 resulted in higher import tariffs for countries involved in dumping pasta in South Africa and neighbouring countries.


Competition


Local dry pasta manufacturers operate in a price-sensitive market and face competition from subsidised low-priced imported pasta from countries such as Turkey and Egypt and EU members such as Latvia and Lithuania. The dried pasta market is dominated by Tiger Brands and Pioneer Foods, and there have been no new entrants to the market in recent years, while some small companies have closed.
