In the short term, new players are expected to compete in the cheese category driven by the investment of local and multinational players. At the end of 2022, the local company Jugos del Uruguay, dedicated to juice production, purchased a cheese and butter production plant.
Despite the strong household penetration and high per capita consumption of cheese in Uruguay, the category has potential for growth over the forecast period. Home-made meals are boosting sales of certain brands, notably mozzarella in soft cheese and a local and cheaper option called “sandwich”.
In retail distribution, e-commerce is expected to show strong growth in cheese over the forecast period, driven by leading retail chains as Ta-Ta, Disco and Tienda Inglesa. Online delivery platforms such as PedidosYa and Rappi will also gain further popularity within small local grocers.
