Zenith’s Cottage Cheese Market Report 2016 explores the return of cottage cheese on supermarkets’ shelves and its future potential. In addition to analysing country and regional growth opportunities, an overview of the market is provided alongside action points and opportunities to unlock its potential.

Background and report description

In recent years, protein has become one of the most highly demanded functional food ingredients, propelled by the success of Greek yogurt in the US market. With this trend showing no signs of abating, manufacturers have taken action to restore the perception of protein-rich cottage cheese amongst consumers.

Cottage cheese has received positive media coverage as a high-protein cultured dairy food competing directly with the likes of Greek yogurt and quark and has gained attention from consumers for its versatility. Innovating with savoury and sweet flavours along with different packaging formats has contributed to its nascent success on the market.

Zenith’s Global Cottage Cheese Market 2016 Report examines the potential of cottage cheese, areas of growth and how manufacturers can capitalize on current trends or take inspiration from other categories, especially yogurt.
