Per-capita food consumption in Malaysia up 4.1% in 2011 amid ongoing development of food retailing sector, maturation of nation's youth population, new report says; soft drink value, alcohol value sales up 13.7% and 5.1%, respectively

DUBLIN , December 21, 2011 (press release) – Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Malaysia Food and Drink Report Q1 2012" report to their offering.

Business Monitor International's Malaysia Food and Drink Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, food and drink associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Malaysia's food and drink industry.

Evidence of a stalling economic recovery in the US and eurozone suggests that the slowdown in external demand could be more severe than previously expected. However, while export growth is expected to be relatively subdued in the near term, BMI remains optimistic that domestic demand will remain resilient on the back of a robust labour market and moderating inflationary pressures. Over the longer term, an ongoing development of the food retailing sector and the maturation of Malaysia's youth population translate into exciting opportunities across the food, drink and mass grocery retail universe. This potential will remain firmly in the sights of multinational consumer goods players, such as Japanese brewer Asahi and US soft drinks giant The Coca Cola Company.
