The food and drinks industry in Mexico

With a growing population and a large number of young people (half of Mexico’s population of 120 million people is under the age of 26), food and drinks consumption in Mexico is expected to continue offering stable growth over the next years. Growth in consumption in recent years has been concentrated in the population deciles with the highest income, according to the ¿National Household Income and Expenditure Survey’, prepared by the National Institute of Statistics, Geography, and Data Processing (INEGI in its Spanish acronym).
Looking at total quarterly household income, we find that decile 10 (the 10% of the population with the highest income) accounts for 33.9% of total income. Naturally, households in the lower-income deciles allocate a significant portion of their spending to food and drinks, that is, to basic consumer goods. However, the portion of the population with very high purchasing power consumes a wide variety of high-end products and services.
The Sixteen edition of Alimentaria Mexico proved once again it’s convening power after its successful completion, with an influx of 10,744 professionals from the food and beverages industry from 32 countries, becoming for three consecutive days a real business, exhibition, updating, and training centre.
