After benefiting from the pandemic in 2020, cheese saw a dip in current retail value growth rates in 2021. However, even as Belgians have returned to work and are spending less time in their homes, cheese has very much stayed on the menu with value sales rising once again in 2022.
Vegetarian and flexitarians will continue to have an impact on the cheese category as consumers enjoying these diets tend to consume cheese as a substitute to meat or fish. Indeed, cheese is often a centrepiece on the plate.
Local cheeses such as Brugge and Chimay will continue to gain value share in the cheese category. Belgians are expected to continue to buy more local and non-industrial cheeses from outdoor markets as they look for specialist brands and local flavours.
