Despite being a well-established product in Uruguay, there will still be potential for growth in cheese over the forecast period. Consumer habits are well-established, with a strong preference for certain brands and types of cheese, which are likely to extend to the younger generation.
Over the forecast period, Uruguayans will begin to seek out healthier alternatives to standard products and become more discerning in their food choices. Spreadable cheese, with its perceived lower fat content, is regarded as a healthy product and will continue to be used as a substitute for butter and margarine, being spread on bread for either breakfast or a light snack in the evening.
The Conaprole brand, produced by domestic company Cooperativa Nacional de Productores de Leche, is expected to continue to lead sales of cheese in Uruguay during the forecast period. The category will, however, remain highly fragmented with Gloria Foods del Uruguay SA set to gain a presence in the short term.
