South Africa: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SF2022-0029

South Africa’s food service sector generated revenues valued at US$3.5 billion in 2021, an upsurge of almost 30 percent from 2020. The South Africa hotel, restaurant, and institutional industry was severely affected by the strict restrictions imposed by the South African government to control the COVID-19 pandemic from March 2020. After the restrictions were gradually lifted in 2021, the industry recorded an uptick in food and beverage sales but has not yet reached pre-pandemic levels.
