CONCLUSIONS

  • The transformation in the processing and retailing segments of the Malian agri-food system is still at an early stage.
  • The expected benefits of lower prices and greater selection of processed products for the mass market from the expansion of modern retailing has not fully taken off.
  • The ability of the local food processing segment to compete in modern retailing will depend on the country’s ability to understand the ongoing changes and overcome market barriers.
