Cheese Manufacturers to Gain Growth Opportunities from Developing Countries  

Developing countries are anticipated to exhibit an extensive rise in cheese consumption due to urbanization and changing food and lifestyle preferences along with the growing number of fast food chains. The growing fast food chains in developing countries is anticipated to lift the demand for cheese for it being an essential ingredient in fast foods. Consumers have amplified their food budgets with additional side products. Cheese manufacturers are thus focusing on capitalizing on these opportunities by increasing their distribution chains through several retail and marketing channels which includes supermarkets and hypermarkets.

Health Concerns to Act as Hindrance

With a rapidly changing lifestyle and an exhausting agenda, consumers are becoming choosier about their diet. The dearth of time for physical activities is impelling them to shift towards a healthy diet. Growing awareness about fat intake with the amount of cheese consumed is a major setback for the market’s growth. The low shell life of cheese is another factor that is expected to hinder the growth of the global cheese market.

A few of the chief companies in the global cheese market are Bongrain SA, Royal Frieslandcampina N.V., EMMI, Fromageries Bel S.A., Fonterra Co-Operative Group Ltd, and Mondelez International Group.
