Retail dairy sales still seeing double-digit growth
IDDBA’s latest ‘COVID-19 Impact’ report shows strong gains for natural cheese, whipped toppings and more.
The International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA), Madison, Wis., released its latest “COVID-19 Impact” report on June 23.
The report found that total store sales, including the fresh perimeter, held very steady at a little over +10%, in spite of going up against the Father’s Day 2019 sales bump, which fell a week earlier than in 2020. Although dairy sales gains were the strongest in March, more than 35% over 2019, sales gains have remained in the double digits ever since, IDDBA said. For the week ending June 14, 2020, the dairy segment saw dollar gains of 13.8%.
