About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Growth in the US cheese industry is being driven by unprocessed cheese as consumers seek out higher quality foods. Within the food industry, affluent shoppers are looking for artisanal, handcrafted, and small batch foods. Within the cheese industry, high-income consumers seek unprocessed cheese that has a richer flavour profile than processed cheese. As a result, current value sales of unprocessed cheese increased by 7% to reach US$18 billion in 2014, whilst processed cheese increased by 4% to reach US$4.8 billion.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Kraft Foods remained the leader in cheese in the US in 2014, with a value share of 31%, down one percentage point from 2013. The company owes its position to its dominance in processed cheese through its Kraft Singles and Philadelphia brands. Kraft has a smaller presence in unprocessed cheese, and faces numerous competitors, ranging from Sargento Foods to artisanal cheese producers and imported cheeses. The company has been busy introducing new products in order to distinguish itself from private label. In April 2013 Kraft Foods introduced Philadelphia Spicy Jalapeno Cream Cheese Spread and Philadelphia Snack Delights in five flavours – dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, cinnamon and Dulce de Leche caramel.

PROSPECTS

  • Sales of cheese are forecast to increase by 2% in value sales at constant 2014 prices and by 6% in retail volume terms over the forecast period. Demand for cheese is expected to rise as increased knowledge about different cheese varieties should aid sales over the forecast period. Retailers and cheese producers alike are expected to continue to educate consumers about speciality cheeses. The 6% retail volume growth will be slightly higher than the 5% growth achieved over the review period. Cheese sales should benefit from consumer demand for more artisanal cheeses and retailers’ expanding shelf space for cheese.
