About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Further levels of segmentation and product innovation continue to boost sales of cheese products in Costa Rica. Consumers continue to prefer hard cheese, such as Turrialba thanks to its traditional recognition, affordable price and good quality. The inclusion of ingredients that add flavour to cheese have become key innovations in cheese, especially in the case of artisan products which are becoming more popular. These products are sold through specialist independent small grocers and supermarkets. Manufacturers have also looked to introduce economic products such as cheese substitutes, which are made with cheaper ingredients, including starch, soy oil, salt, casein and others.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Dos Pinos will remain the market leader for cheese in 2013, as the company is expected to account for 46% of total retail value sales. The success of this domestic company is largely contributed to the strength of its brands, available in both modern and traditional grocery retailers. This company benefits from large economies-of-scale savings achieved during the manufacturing and distribution of its products. Sigma Alimentos will maintain its position as the second largest company in cheese in 2013, with 33% of the retail value sales of the category in 2013. Two popular brands; Del Prado and its new acquisition Monteverde, which it required in April 2013, have large amounts of experience in cheese in Costa Rica and are particularly well positioned to manufacture mature cheeses, such as gouda, edam and cheddar. The acquisition of Monteverde, by Sigma Alimentos has meant both companies are consolidating their network of distributors which will reinforce their marketing resources.

PROSPECTS

  • Cheese is expected to benefit from further product innovation in the form of added value features and re-launched products over the forecast period. Spreadable cream cheese in particular, alongside other cheese categories that have remained relatively stagnant in the review period are expected to benefit from innovation. Artisan products are expected to develop further in Costa Rica over the forecast period, with small manufacturers focussing on upper class niche consumers, a group that is highly interested in specialist products. On the other hand, cheese imitations and other economy options have the potential to increase their share of cheese sales as well, through low unit prices. Local manufacturers are expected to keep innovating towards premium products, while soft cheese will witness a large increase in international competition.
