Discover the latest global trends and activity across the cheese market. Our forward-looking report identifies areas which are evolving, consumer attitudes, and important advances expected across the EMEA, APAC, and Americas regions over the next five years and beyond.



Global Cheese Market: Current Landscape

The global cheese market is facing headwinds post-pandemic due to food inflation, the climate crisis, and consumers’ environmental concerns. To stay competitive, major dairy players in EMEA are entering the plant-based cheese market and brands are doubling down on sustainable packaging. Brands can encourage consumers to reappraise cheese by telling their story of sustainable farming practices.

  • 31% of Italian cheese consumers say that environmental concerns have caused them to reduce the amount of cheese they eat.
  • 31% of US cheese consumers agree that dairy-free cheese is healthier than regular cheese.

Global Cheese Market: Trends in the Next Two Years

Inflation is causing consumers to look for more cost-effective options when it comes to cheese, with almost half of UK consumers expressing interest in cheaper alternatives. Brands will respond to consumers by providing affordable cheese types and promoting the use of cheese to create inventive dishes, while also striving towards a more sustainable future by creating eco-friendly supply chains and exploring animal-free cheese options.

Global Cheese Market Forecast: Five Years and Beyond

Environmental taxes and growing environmental concerns will convince cheese brands to be part of the solution to the climate crisis, pushing sustainability to the forefront of the global cheese market. Meanwhile, patent activities suggest that more cheese with probiotics will be launched, helping to dial up the health credentials of both dairy and vegan cheeses.
