"Belarus Food & Drink Report Q1 2014" is now available at Fast Market Research

We expect to see significant growth in food consumption in Belarus (in rubles) over 2014 and continuing over our forecast period to 2017. However, this expansion will not be driven by increased economic activity, with real GDP growth per capita (in US dollar terms) forecast to contract by 2.8% and 1.5% in 2014 and 2015. Rather, the growth will be fuelled by price increases, with inflation expected to increase 17.5% in both 2014 and 2015 at a compound annual growth rate of 22.7% through to 2017. In 2010, however, this growth is coming from a very low base; based on 2010 figures, Belarus had the ninth lowest GDP per capita of all sovereign nations in Europe, and we consider it a risky market due to its political isolation from much of Europe and the high level of government intervention in economic matters. The country's high level of inflation over the past few years, which we expect to continue while gradually decreasing, is a further concern, particularly for consumer goods sectors.
