Supermarkets: a new actor in the food system!

In 1990 15-20% of food sold in supermarkets in Latin America. Now this is 60% of the average population share. They are becoming the main buyers in the supply chains for processed foods

Even the poorest country, Nicaragua, has gone from 45 to 60 supermarkets in the last year

Now 705 supermarkets in Central America. Replace small stores and plaza-markets. They do not replace street fairs and focused fruit & vegetable stores

Top 5 chains control two-thirds of the supermarket sector in Latin America (Walmart, Carrefour, Ahold)

Asia, urban Africa are next
