General Grocery Market

End of financial year 2014, every financial expert, market key players and stakeholders have their views. We expected the environment will be US Dollar and RMB strong in long term, EU and JP Dollar is weak, which reflect to US dollars, NZ Dollar parallel to OZ in short term. Within OZ, a higher housing prices is in long term due to international buyer and the benefit of low currency. The price benefit to other sectors of the economy, boosting residential construction demand and stimulating consumer spending.

Let’s pick one of the opportunities - general groceries as an focus. Operators in this industry wholesale a wide range of general groceries to a variety of markets, including supermarkets, convenience stores and food-service establishments. To be included in the industry, a firm must wholesale at least three of the following grocery lines: meat, poultry and small goods; dairy produce; fish and seafood; fruit and vegetables; liquor or tobacco; and confectionery or soft drinks.

Wholesalers pressured by the increasing dominance of major supermarkets. General line grocery wholesalers that supply supermarkets and grocery stores have faced price pressures and reduced profit, as competition increases. But there is more sale we are aggressively expecting the coming financial year. Because a demand from accommodation and food-service industries has assisted industry growth. Industry revenue is projected to post annualised growth of 1.4% over the five years through 2014-15, to reach $20.4 billion. This includes forecast revenue growth of 1.5% in 2014-15.

So, the key supermarket player, the housing, the international buyers, the currency and the government policy are the index finger to your investment. Good luck for new financial year. :)
