Key Market Issues

Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's and Morrison's account for 75.5% of the UK's Food market. Hypermarkets & Supermarkets will continue to constitute the largest share of retail space, followed by Convenience Stores and Food & Drink specialists. Tesco retained its position as the top retailer, followed by ASDA, Sainsbury's, and Morrison's.

The UK's eating habits are impacted by an aging population and a shift in consumer preferences towards nutritional and healthy eating.

Low fat, low calorie Dairy products are gaining popularity among young UK consumers. However, indulgent and premium dessert options are also popular, which indicates a wide variety of needs driving the desserts market, from those who prefer health conscious products to those who look for indulgent flavors.

The search for better value for money is helping private label products to grow across categories. Dairy Food products as a snack are growing, as Pudding/desserts, Cheese, and Yogurt explore the functional ingredient space with a variety of flavors.

Key Highlights

Retailers will continue to challenge brands with price discounting, while offering quality private label products. Private label brands are also exploring the premium space while competing with national brands across all Dairy products.

Milk and Yogurt accounted for the majority of the total number of packs used in the UK's Dairy Food sector in 2012, driving the significant demand for Rigid Plastic packaging material.

Yogurt, Fromage Frais, and Cheese snacks are popular lunchbox products, with a strong health positioning.

Protein consumption is of growing importance in the overall Dairy Food market, as opposed to just for gym and sports enthusiasts.
