Dean Foods Co in Health and Wellness

April 2013

Dean Foods Co leads global FF milk and soy-based dairy alternatives sales but remains heavily reliant on the US. It has spun off its WhiteWave-Alpro division to focus on innovation in Western Europe and the US but due to rising health education and demand for soy-based products, the company should look to enter Asia Pacific and Latin America. Health positionings including weight management, digestive health and bone and joint health offer opportunities to expand in the US’ mature milk market.
