EXPLORING OPPORTUNITIES IN THE THRIVING PHILIPPINE F&B SECTOR
The growth of the Food and Beverage sector is primarily driven by the Philippines’ growing middle class with an increased consumer spending. In Q1 of 2016, the total household consumption value for F&B (including alchoholic beverages) was PHP 1,000,609 million (19,150 million EUR), which comprises 40.7% of the whole household expenditure.
