Cow’s milk and full fat shelf table milk continue to reap the benefits of the drive towards packaged drinking milk products in Uzbekistan as consumers have become more hygiene conscious since the inception of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whereas milk is generally dominated by unpackaged sales sold by artisans or local producers in open air markets, there has been growing recognition in Uzbekistan of the extra protection that packaging can provide when purchasing food and drink.
In general, there is a wide variety of players in packaged drinking milk products in Uzbekistan. Firstly, there are manufacturers that are able to produce and process up to 500 litres of milk per day, usually distributing their products themselves within their region, packed in glass bottles.
As there is a very weak vegan culture in Uzbekistan, the country has not followed in the footsteps of other regions in the uptake of vegan diets. Soy drinks and other milk alternatives are not expected to have any impact on drinking milk products in 2021.
Strong government support for dairy manufacturing in Uzbekistan means that there is potential for the continued growth of locally produced drinking milk products in the country. The government aims to protect local manufacturing by increasing customs duties, providing additional subsidies for livestock, attracting international investors, and constructing state-owned dairy enterprises.
Traditionally Uzbekistan has imported a large number of dairy products from Belarus, and this trend is set to continue in 2021. The tie between the two countries is set to develop at a state level throughout the forecast period, however, as the Uzbekistan state proposes further cooperation in dairy with Belarus.
Demand for drinking milk products in Uzbekistan is primarily met by local production, which has significantly increased in capacity over the last 15 years. Local brands have developed high levels of consumer loyalty, while consumption of raw milk purchased directly from farmers is expected to remain high.
