January 2, 2015
Mega trends like natural and specialty cheese consumption, the millennial generation's impact on the food industry, snacking, and the growing use of social networks and apps for recipes and purchase decisions will continue to gather momentum according to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
Nearly all consumers buy private-label products when grocery shopping, according to a study of 6,600 consumers conducted by Market Force Information, Louisville, Colo. Of the categories studied, dairy products were the most frequently purchased private-label grocery item. Snacks ranked second and cereal and cleaning supplies tied for third.
How’s the dairy foods business? Which one? If you sell natural cheese or Greek yogurt, then the answer is: Great. If you bottle milk or package ice cream, then the answer might be: Things could be better.
