South Africa Food Fortification Premix Market to be Aided by the Projected Global Market Growth at a CAGR of 8.5% between 2021-2026

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘South Africa Food Fortification Premix Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the South Africa food fortification market attained a volume of nearly 10.87 kilo tons in 2020. The food fortification premix market in South Africa is expected to grow between the forecast period of 2021-2026, aided by the growing global market, which is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% in the forecast period.

The South Africa food fortification premix market is being driven by the growing food fortification premix market in the Middle East and Africa, which occupies a 16% market share in the global market. In 2018, the Middle East and Africa premix market for food fortification attained a production volume of 5.5 kilo tons aided by the government mandated fortification of food staples across various countries in the regions. In Africa, the fortification of wheat flour has been mandated in 26 countries out of which nine countries have mandatory maize flour fortification too. Countries like Lesotho and Namibia fortify over half their industrially milled maize flour even though it has not been governmentally mandated. Commonly consumed food items like cooking oil, sugar, and salt are also fortified in multiple countries in Africa.

South Africa made the fortification of certain maize meal types and wheat flour mandatory on the 7th of October 2003. Thus, maize meals and wheat flour are fortified with nutrients like vitamin A, riboflavin, thiamine, folic acid, pyridoxine, zinc, and iron. The main focus of the compulsory fortification of certain products was to decrease the occurrences of neural tube defect (NTD) with the help of folic acid fortification of these essential food products. It also aimed to reduce the occurrences of childhood blindness caused by a severe deficiency of Vitamin A. This mandatory fortification of maize meals and wheat flour in South Africa is providing impetus to the food fortification premix market in the country.

In South Africa, the food fortification premix market is also being aided by the various undertakings by major food and beverage companies like Nestlé, which aim to address the micronutrient deficiencies prevailing in the country. Nestlé is working with the local governments in South Africa to identify the gaps in nutrient-intake that affects people across the socio-economic groups. It helps address these deficiencies or gaps by fortifying some of its popular food products like MAGGI 2Minute Noodles, CHEERIOS and MILO cereals, and NIDO 3+ and NESPRAY powdered milk.
