2nd Myanmar Consumer Summit – 18-19 June 2014

17 May 2014

With the opening of the economy in Myanmar, the food sector has seen many new entrants. For instance, Singapore’s Chewy Junior, seller of sweet and savory puffs, is doing brisk business and has already opened its fourth outlet in the country. Now it has 3 franchise outlets in Yangon and another in Mandalay within a year of entering the Myanmar market. The food sector is expanding rapidly in Myanmar with both local and foreign players trying to attract the 60 million plus consumer base in the country. Plus, Myanmar’s growing consumer base is also developing a taste for fine foods such as premium wines, etc. However, the frontier nation do face some challenges related to import licensing and import tax on food and beverages.
