Pakistan Food & Drink Report Q1 2008

Description:    The Pakistan Food Drink Report provides independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on
                Pakistans food and drink industry.

                The release of third-quarter and nine-month financial results has continued to highlight the strong
                growth opportunities available to consumer goods manufacturers in the fledgling but vast market of

                Likewise, the performance of leading food and beverage companies, coupled with Pakistan’s
                sustained economic growth, has continued to influence our industry growth forecasts in our newly-
                published Pakistan Food & Drink Report Q108. However, for all these positive signs, there are a
                number of major negatives - market and country risks and inherent consumer price sensitivity
                among them.

                Pakistan’s largest consumer goods company Unilever Pakistan posted its third-quarter and nine-
                month financial results in November 2007. For Q307 sales were up 7% year-on-year (y-o-y), while
                profit-aftertax had climbed by 20%. Meanwhile nine month sales growth stood at 10%, while profit-
                after-tax climbed by 5%. Such results - although shy of Unilever’s 20% annual growth target -
                provide much cause for positivity. Results posted by Nestlé Pakistan support this positive view. For
                the first nine months of 2007 the company’s sales jumped by an enormous 28% y-o-y to reach
                US$342.3mn. Sustained internal and foreign direct investment (FDI) into the food and beverage
                sector, supported by our average annual GDP growth forecast of 6.7% to 2012, a youthful
                population and steady urbanisation have prompted us to revise a number of its industry growth
                forecasts upwards this quarter.

                The outlook for the canned food industry - which can exploit rising demand for convenience and
                consumer fears over food origin and hygiene - and the soft drinks industry - which can capitalise on
                the aspirational demands of Pakistan’s young population - have both been moderately accelerated.
                Forecast canned food sales growth to 2012 now stands at 46.7%, while soft drinks sales growth to
                2012 is forecast to stand at 36.4%. Both have contributed to a per capita food consumption growth
                forecast amendment to 15.4%.

                The downside of all these attractive growth signs is quite simply that they are not yet attractive
                enough to offset the risks of investing in Pakistan. The country falls at the very bottom of our new
                Food and Drink Business Environment Ratings, due to both its limits and its associated risks. In
                limits terms, food and beverage spending levels remain low due to acute price sensitivity among
                certain consumer groups, particularly those in rural areas. Even though spending levels are forecast
                to increase, in relative terms this growth will be moderate thanks to the booming economic growth
                being experienced by many of Pakistan’s neighbours. The country’s risks outlook is even more
                problematic than its limits outlook. Such a vast and underdeveloped market poses huge
                infrastructural challenges, while income inequalities and perceived bureaucracy and corruption
                remain problems on the economic and political side.
                Ultimately, as the report details, Pakistan looks set to remain an attractive market, but only for
                those with the scale and patience to ride out the still considerable market entry risks.
