Key Market Issues

The growing number of city dwellers (urbanization) and growing middle class not only increased the awareness of the nutritional value of Dairy products among German customers, but also improved their affordability of value added Dairy products such as pasteurized, ultra-pasteurized, and specialized and Fruit Milk.

Hypermarkets and Supermarkets continue to dominate in all categories of the Dairy Food Market, owing to the price convenience in the Milk category in order to bring footfall.

Milk and Cheese constitute almost two-thirds of the packaging material demand in the Dairy Food market in 2012, driving a significant requirement for Rigid Plastic and Flexible packaging.

German consumers are becoming more health conscious, leading the way for more healthy and balanced products including lactose-free, light, and low-fat dairy products.

Demand for Paper and Board Sleeves and Box type outers will increase particularly quickly as a result of the steadily rising consumption of the Cheese and Yogurt categories in Germany.
