(Business in Cameroon) - MIRAP, the body that regulates the supply of consumer goods in Cameroon, said that it generated CFA20 billion between 2011 and 2016. 

The regulator which was created in 2008 following the émeutes de la faim explained that to achieve this, it supported, in partnership with 931 producers’ organizations, the setting of 1,1361 street markets in Yaoundé and Douala and 1,034 regular specialized test markets in the capitals of some departments. These actions helped supply 70,671 tons of consumer products like sugar, flour, poultry or meats at a reduced price. 

MIRAP also explained that the test retail stores currently under construction will help make these products more available and accessible by the end of 2017.
