View Full Version : Energy Drinks in Africa... Help!

02-05-2007, 11:17 PM

A local company here in Monterrey, Mexico is about to begin to produce its own brand of energy drink. By the end of the year they also hope to begin exporting and I was asked to identify potential markets in Africa.

So far, based on statistics (gpd per capita, tourism, imports, etc.) I’ve narrowed it down to the following countries:
South Africa, Morocco, Egypt, Cape Verde, Botswana and Seychelles

But I’m having a really hard time finding out what energy drinks are already available in these countries and how they are being distributed.

Does anyone have any ideas of how I might be able to obtain this info????

I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!!!!!

Yeah and stay away from emails or call from Nigeria and Benin lol they are all scams. Make them pay for samples and freight. Don't export before the $$ is in your account. They are also known to send fraudulent checks..

My ex-gf is from Seychelles, I beleive they have Red Bull. It sounds like an attractive market. Lots of tourists, resorts, etc.
