Other crops produced in South Korea are millet, corn, sorghum, buckwheat, soybeans, and potatoes, fruits and vegetables which include pears, grapes, mandarin oranges, apples, peaches, Welsh onions, Chinese cabbage, red peppers, persimmons, cabbage, and radishes.

Food services

Growing disposable incomes lead increased expenditure on food and beverages; eating at restaurants, cafes, bars and fast food are popular in South Korea and western-style foods becoming popular. Food services in South Korea continue to be restructured as large food service companies and broad-based food service distributors expand at the expense of small independent companies. As a result, the sector generates additional demand for products with a new taste, added value, stable supply, consistent quality and other specifications adapted to the industries. As Koreans work long hours, they increasingly appreciate the convenience of fast food restaurants that offer healthy quality options. The home delivery and take-out segments, which are strongly associated with convenience, are expected to be the fastest growing category between 2019 and 2022, with a CAGR of 6.5%.

Consumer expenditure and retail sales

Packaged food in South Korea recorded stable year-over-year retail value growth from 2014 to 2018 and it is expected to continue to grow over the forecast period (2019-2023). Retail sales were valued at US$27.4 billion in 2018, with a CAGR of 2.5% from 2014 to 2018. By 2023, retail sales are expected to reach US$31.3 billion, registering a growth rate increase of 2.7%.

Convenience remains an important factor that is driving the eating habits of South Koreans with busy lifestyles. Packaged food companies and other food manufacturers are focusing on developing more convenient and healthier food products. The South Korean consumer market is highly developed and Western-style foods are growing in popularity, which is expected to boost the demand for popular U.S., Canadian and European products.

The soup and ready meal category products are expected to see the most significant sales growth in the packaged food sector over the 2019-2023 forecast period, increasing respectively by a CAGR of 21.3% and 8.6%. These two categories are driven primarily by a growing aging population, which demands frozen foods with high nutritional value and low preservatives as well as by a growing demand for more timely ways of cooking and preparing convenient products. Increases in women entering the workforce, single person households and long working commutes are all factors that have reduced the time available for home meal preparation and grocery shopping owing to which people are shifting towards frozen processed foods. Convenience and attractive price range are among the key drivers for the growth of frozen food products in South Korea. However, during the forecast period, many packaged food categories are forecasted to reach maturity, such as edible oils, baby food, sweet biscuits, snack bars and fruit snacks.

Health and wellness food products

Consumers are becoming increasingly health conscious as a result of rising health awareness. This has led to higher demand for health and wellness variants, particularly for naturally healthy and organic products. The health and wellness sector grew by a CAGR of 2.4% from 2014 to 2018, and is expected to grow by a CAGR of 4.4% over the 2019-2023 period.

The range of available health and wellness products increased in diversity as major manufacturers continued to introduce new organic and naturally healthy brands. South Korean consumers have also become increasingly knowledgeable about food ingredients and nutrition. They can directly check ingredients through their smartphones if manufacturers make fortified/functional claims on the packaging. As a result, manufacturers tend to include as much information as possible on the packaging even if the information is in technical terms.

Organic foods and beverages remained the smallest categories in the health and wellness sector due to their higher unit prices. However, trending demand for organic and fresh frozen organic food products by young professionals and the older population will drive the growth in the upcoming years.

The health and wellness market in South Korea in 2018 continued to achieve growth, with naturally healthy (NH) products making the strongest progress. NH beverages benefited from the increasing popularity of carbonated natural mineral and spring bottled water while health-conscious consumers considered safe and wholesome ingredients and products known for their natural formulations.

Opportunities for Canada

South Korea is a growing market for safe, quality and healthy food products. Canada is perceived by Koreans as a country with good environment & quality products and South Koreans are willing to pay for big-name brands and quality Canadian products. Canada's low market share of South Korea's imported food represents room for expansion and CKFTA will help improve Canada's competitiveness within the South Korean market. Koreans are also tech savvy, and love to shop online, which is a new distribution channel for Canadian exporters.

As of January 1, 2019, 95% of Canada's exports will benefit from duty-free access into South Korea as a result of the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA). This includes new duty-free access for a variety of goods, such as: lentils; chocolate and chocolate confectionary; and prepared frozen and cold-water shrimp. Upon full implementation of the CKFTA on January 1, 2032, South Korean tariffs will be eliminated on 99.75% of Canada's exports. Consult the Canada Tariff Finder to explore further tariff information, other than below information, for the South Korean market under the CKFTA, and other foreign markets with which Canada has a free trade agreement.
