Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Richard Caines, a leading analyst in the Food & Drink sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
A focus on meals and cooking will be important for future sales of cheese as its most popular carrier product, bread, is in decline. Promoting cheese as an indulgent snack offers another route for keeping cheese on the menu. Highlighting provenance, artisan cheese-making skills and different taste experiences offer possibilities for encouraging trading up. More samplings, ideas and advice at a retail level can also support the buying of a wider range of cheeses
