About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Cheese has significantly benefited from the already approved free trade agreements (in particular those with European countries and the US) which have open room for the entrance of a significant base of gourmet-oriented products which are originally manufactured at recognised regions located in European countries such as Italy, France, Greece, Demark, Switzerland and Norway amongst others. On the same line, local agro industrial manufactures have consolidated their efforts (expertise) to produce specific alternatives (species, herbs added, maturation processes, artisanal GWP) which permit them to increase profit margins, make use of their whole dairy production and take advantage of certain differentiation factors, such as origin and knowhow which is the case of volcano surrounding farms (Irazú, Barva, Turrialba). As in other categories, low calorie oriented product development (reduced fat cheese) marked a significant trend within cheese, with an increasing base of consumers opting for purchasing light alternatives (which are mainly developed under hard cheeses), which have encouraged manufacturers to apply different positioning strategies, such as the new brand Lite House which is recommended by a recognised local nutrition centre.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Cooperativa de Productos de Leche Dos Pinos, RL is set to be the prevailing leader in cheese, accounting for 46% value share in 2014, although the Mexican manufacturer Sigma Alimentos Costa Rica SA is also set to account for a significant share of 34% value share. Both companies, which are the main references in dairy products in the country to benefit from strong distribution networks and effective economies of scale, as they both participate in a broad number of categories (milk, yoghurt, ice cream, cheese). Their top of brands, Dos Pinos and Monteverde are recognised being good-quality products and constant innovation while segmenting their consumers’ needs through different product lines (standard and premium, packaged and unpacked).

PROSPECTS

  • Forecast trends are expected to continue developing towards further levels of product segmentation, with the increased offer of high-end alternatives gradually reaching a breakeven point in line with the ongoing economic situation. The category is anticipated to see dynamic levels of product innovation with trial period line extensions (low calorie, added herbs), packaging innovation and a strong artisanal oriented movement. Premiumisation might reach higher levels of penetration through the increasing base of high-end supermarkets and convenience stores, which might end boosting the culture of cheese in the country, in line with other emerging cultures (wine, beer, health indulgence snacks). On the other hand, local manufacturers might continue strengthening the distribution of their best sellers, such as Turrialba, Tico, Mozzarella, in order to defend their shares before import alternatives.
