Generational differences in cheese preferences are leading manufacturers to adopt new strategies. Traditional and more old-fashioned cheeses such as blue cheese and camembert are more popular with older consumers, and in order to attract younger consumers, manufacturers are increasingly releasing pre-cut or pre-cubed versions of these cheeses.
Meanwhile, organic cheeses will continue to grow, as consumers already value the authenticity and health attributes associates with these cheeses since their production is tightly regulated. Growth in organic cheese products will likely be in spreadable and soft cheeses, which are seeing new launches by the major dairy manufacturers.
Many different types of cheeses are penalised by the Nutri-score system due to the high fat and salt content in such cheeses, which results in many such cheeses being rated very poorly. With cheese being an integral part of French cuisine, cheese associations and federations are calling for PDO cheeses to be exempt from the obligation to display the Nutri-score whilst the EU is considering making it compulsory.
