Explosion of Restaurants Around the World Open Doors for Goat Cheese Market

Well thought out menus that are designed to be inclusive of the lactose intolerant population, healthier choices, and exotic experiences have created a significant demand for goat cheese in recent years. This has prompted manufacturers to ramp up production as diets and palates undergo fast changes. For instance, Saputo Inc., added goat cheese crumbles, frozen goat cheese, goat milk feta cheese, and goat cheeses logs to its portfolio. These products have been specially designed for restaurants to keep up with the surging demand.

Fresh Goat Cheese Leads Market Making a Case for Homegrown Brands

This unaged cheese, for immediate consumption, is expected to grab a lion’s share in the global goat cheese market during the forecast period. It will be aided by the well-established and entry of new diaries in local markets that are focussed on tapping into a homegrown segment. Efforts to build homegrown brands of artisanal goat cheese will bode well for this segment in the next five years.

Europe to Remain Critical to Goat Cheese Demand with France as Key Consumer

France has remained a key consumer of goat cheese in despite lockdowns and curbs on restaurants. According to analysts, the goat cheese demand in the country was up by 6% in 2020. The trend is expected to continue as France exports about 25% of the goat cheese and owns the third-largest goat herd across all of Europe.
