A new report by XploreMR studies the growth drivers, trends, restraints, and highlights of the global organic cheese market. Presenting exclusive insights into the market from 2017 to 2022, the report projects that the market will witness significant growth during the forecast period. The growth of the market is predominantly driven by the high nutritional values and a wide range of flavors, textures, and forms of organic cheese. Organic cheese is the cheese extracted from the milk of cows, which were solely fed with organic food, as opposed to synthetic chemicals. Moreover, substances such as genetically modified microorganisms (GMO) and chemical additives such as colorants, flavor enhancers or preservatives are used in the manufacturing of organic cheese, thus bringing a plethora of health benefits to the table.

Health-consciousness of Young-adults Transmutes into Market Growth

Numerous players in the organic cheese market are focusing on expanding their product portfolio by offering unique cheese flavors and new cheese snack packs, to set their cash registers ringing. Over the years, organic cheese has found adoption among health-conscious millennials, owing to the high number of health benefits. Organic cheese has a strong presence of antioxidants such as lutein, and vitamin E, which prevents cancer and heart diseases. Furthermore, organic cheese also lowers the exposure to the toxins and pesticides that often come from factory farming practices, thus safeguarding children against the ill-effects of such compounds on their rapidly growing, sensitive nervous systems. On this premise, the manufacturers of organic cheese are trying to capture the millennial population with lucrative flavors. On the other hand, the growing trend of veganism poses a challenge to the swift growth of the market owing to the increasing preference for plant-based, vegan cheese.  Lactose intolerance among consumers could also refrain them from consuming cheese, thus representing a restriction to the growth of the organic cheese market. On a positive note, scientific evidence regarding adverse health effects due to synthetic pesticide residues in food, coupled with growing concerns of animal welfare issues in the dairy industry will continue to propel the demand for organic cheese among the cheese-consuming population base.

Europe Remains in Forefront while Sales Witness Upsurge in Asia Pacific

Europe is expected to remain the leading regional market for organic, invigorated by the strong presence of major market players and high demand among younger consumers. The wider sales channels are also increasing the profit margins to the players in the European region. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is also estimated to contribute significantly to the global market revenue, backed by rising levels of disposable income and growing appetite for newer products, in countries such as China and India. The growth of the market in this region is also driven by a high emphasis on well-being and public health.
