Dairy diversification

Nov 2017

Dairy is one of the most active categories in the global food and beverages industry. Dairy products are naturally fortified with protein, which is highly valued by consumers. Through continuous innovation, the industry provides diversified choices to fulfill consumers’ specific demands. Many highlights have been observed within the new product development of dairy. Driven by Greek yogurt’s huge success, high-protein products featuring Skyr are set to surge outside of its hometown of Iceland and spread to the rest of the world. In addition to almond milk and soy milk, alternative dairy drinks with different plant bases are appearing in the market. More premium products are offering consumers with enhanced indulgent experience.
