Food retail sales value Philippines 2011-2020

As of 2019, the sales value of the Philippine’s retail food industry amounted to 50 billion U.S. dollars. The Philippines' retail food industry has grown significantly in sales value yearly.

Food retail goods

Packaged foods were one of the most popular goods in Filipino consumers' shopping carts. As of 2018, the retail sales value of packaged foods was nearly 12.4 billion U.S. dollars and was forecasted to increase to 15.6 billion U.S. dollars by 2023. Of these, processed meats and seafood, as well as dairy, savory snacks, edible oils, and rice, pasta, and noodles, comprised the top five leading types of packaged foods in terms of retail sales value.

Purchasing behavior with the onset of Covid-19 pandemic

As of the beginning of 2020, food and drink accounted for only 11 percent of the Philippines' e-commerce market segments. However, according to a recent survey conducted in May, with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic and measures such as lockdown and social distancing being taken, food and groceries became the leading commodity purchased on e-commerce sites by Filipino consumers. Dry food items such as rice, flour, pasta, and noodles, were the food items frequently bought from e-commerce sites, followed by canned food products, thereby boosting the country's online food retail sector.
