Products covered in this Report
This Report examines the UK retail market for yogurts and yogurt
drinks, excluding sales through foodservice establishments.
Mintel’s definition of yogurt includes:
- spoonable yogurt
- fromage frais
- yogurt drinks
Functional fermented milk drinks such as Yakult are included
in the Report since cultures similar to those contained therein
feature in products positioned as yogurt. The market size includes
quark as it is a fermented dairy product, however, its share of the
market is small.
What you need to know
Estimated at just shy of £2 billion in 2018, the UK yogurt and
yogurt drinks market grew by 4.3% over 2013-18, driven primarily
by inflation towards the end of the period. Further inflation is
expected for both segments over 2018-23. Spoonable yogurt
volume sales are predicted to remain largely flat, with some
marginal growth for drinking yogurts. Consequently spoonable
and drinking yogurt value sales are projected to rise by 9.5% to
£2.2 billion and volumes by 1.2% to 666 million litres by 2023.
Spoonable yogurt enjoys high penetration, eaten by three
quarters of UK adults. Yogurt drinks are drunk by one in five
(22%) adults. Many consumers’ close label scrutiny adds
to pressure on the industry to be seen to deliver on health.
Environmentally friendly products such as with recycled
packaging or sustainable farming guarantees attract strong
consumer interest, and offer a means for companies to
demonstrate their socially responsible credentials.
