Zimbabwe's top five supermarkets Ok, TM, Pick n Pay, Spar and Food World are reluctant to allocate more shelf space to local goods as they have reservations on their quality, efficiency and standards.

In the six months to June local companies shelled out more than $400 million on foreign groceries, mostly from South Africa.

Retailers however say while they are willing to work with local product first, some were unreliable, inconsistent and thus attracted little consumer interest either through poor quality or unattractive packaging.

Retailers also say they need to be sure there is enough capacity in local companies.
