As per Future Market Insights (FMI), the processed cheese market will reach nearly US$ 11.1 Bn by 2022. snackable cheese choices are becoming increasingly popular. As a result, many cheese processors have begun introducing cheese products suited for on-the-go nibbling. Consumers increasingly purchase high-protein, low-carb snacks produced with high-quality, simple ingredients. Within the cheese industry, the snacking trend is combined with another trend: a desire for flavour variety and adventure.
Cream cheese spreads, for example, are available in various tastes, including Original, Aged Cheddar, Seriously Strawberry, and Very Veggie. Processed cheese is popular among children because of its smooth texture and mild flavour. Furthermore, some younger consumers avoid real cheese in favor of dairy-free alternatives.
Consumers that identify as flexitarians are significantly responsible for the general growth of the plant-based movement. Such consumers attempt to consume fewer animal products rather than fully eliminate them. Processed nut-free cheese substitutes are now available in certain stores, made from cultured legumes and oats.
