Other dairy benefited considerably from lockdown in 2020. With more time spent at home, consumers had more time to prepare food and desserts at home, which helped lift sales of cream and condensed milk is especially useful.
Coffee whiteners, which is a small part of the category in Ecuador, saw sales shrink in 2021 as foodservice venues reopened and consumers returned to the country’s cafés. However, full consumer movement has yet to be restored, and a significant number of consumers continue to work from home whenever possible.
Other dairy in Ecuador contains an extremely narrow band of products – there is no visible presence of chilled and shelf stable desserts, chilled snacks, flavoured condensed milk or fromage frais and quark. Cream and condensed milk are the most important parts of the category, and these have movement on the competitive environment.
Other dairy is anticipated to see ongoing decline over the forecast period, in both volume and value terms. There are a number of reasons for this, but the most important are health related.
Traditionally sold in metal food cans, condensed milk is becoming increasingly available in Tetra Pak cartons and stand-up pouches, enhancing product storage and extending shelf life. Standard and economy brands, including private label, usually come in plastic bag packaging.
Despite Ecuador’s COVID-19-driven recession, there is still a growing urban middle class that could offer potential for other dairy products over the forecast period. Urbanisation continues at pace, and will fuel the expansion of this cohort.
