Sales growth in 2011 largely in line with review period average
Hot drinks are popular in Tunisia and are considered an integral part of the lifestyle. Growth of tea and coffee in 2011 was in line with the review period average and increased at the same rate as population growth. In the few months following the January revolution, on-trade sales dipped as security concerns meant people went out less frequently. However, as the situation improved, visits to cafés and restaurants picked up as these are popular venues in which to discuss political issues, something which was forbidden under Ben Ali’s rule.
Unit prices increase following the Jasmine Revolution
The Jasmine Revolution had a negative impact on the economy during at least the first half of the year. The country’s newfound freedom of speech had some side effects, such as employee sit-ins in factories and offices, but also violence and looting from a minority. Disruption caused prices to soar for most commodities and foodstuffs as production came to a standstill and triggered fears of shortages. As a result, coffee and tea were directly hit by food inflation during the year.
Domestic players dominate coffee
Office du Commerce de la Tunisie (OCT) dominates tea production and distribution in Tunisia. All fresh coffee brands are domestic, with the three largest being Ellouze, Bondin and Ben Yedder. In instant coffee, international brands such as those from Nestlé SA and Kraft Foods Inc are quite popular with Tunisian consumers and perform better than other brands. In other hot drinks, Société de Produits Industriels de Patisseries et Alimentaires (SPIPA) and Société Tunisienne de Chocolaterie et de Confiserie are the most important with their respective brands Spipa and Chocoline, which are particularly liked by children.
Coffee consumption linked to economic crisis
Hot drinks are available in all off-trade channels but half of volume sales originate from independent small grocers. This channel slightly increased its share in 2011 as consumers would rather buy from their local shop than a supermarket. With regard to the on-trade, there were no chained coffee shops in the country in 2011 as independent cafés are very competitive and well-established and are seen as ideal places in which to socialise and meet with friends.
On-trade volume sales set to perform better over the forecast period
The January revolution will have a profound social impact over the forecast period. The main impact will be renewed interest in political issues due to the fact that people will be able to express their opinions freely. The once thriving café culture, seen in other parts of the Mediterranean, will recover and lead to stronger growth in volume terms than in the off-trade.
