The Scope and Scale of Processed Food Retailing in Urban Mali

The increasingly urbanized Malian population combined with the growth in disposable income are bringing major changes in lifestyle and diet. There is an unprecedented demand for diversified and easy-toprepare foods. In the region, urban consumers are shifting away from traditional staples (i.e., roots and tubers) and towards processed rice and wheat-based products (i.e., noodles, pasta, and bread) (Hollinger and Staatz 2015). Income increases are also associated with growth in foods with high-income elasticities of demand, such as meat, dairy products, and fruits and vegetables (Zhou and Staatz 2016).
