These include dairy’s healthful halo and the explosive growth in the Hispanic population, an ethnic segment that views cultured dairy products as staples in their daily diet and in meal preparation. With 2004 retail sales in the neighborhood of $8 billion, cultured dairy categories such as drinkable yogurt, probiotic shots, dips, and cream cheese-style spreads are driving growth.

Smaller translates to a greater chance of failure as a result of fewer resources; however, in the cultured dairy segment, smaller also means more willingness to be creative and take risks when it comes to innovation.
