Cheddar cheese remains the most important cheese type in terms of both value and volume, with a 39.1% contribution to the former in 2010. Gouda cheese lost significant volume and share in 2010, to lose its second place position and become the third most popular cheese type in South Africa after cheddar and mozzarella. Strategic decisions to focus on other business units by key players in this sector are the major contributing factor to volume losses seen in the gouda cheese market. Mozzarella cheese performed exceptionally well in 2010 with 11.0% growth seen in this market, reflecting the highest growth rate across all cheese types. Growth in this market is driven by the foodservices sector, which consumes close to half of mozzarella cheese produced. Soft cheese as well as other everyday cheese remain niche product offerings within this market with a combined contribution of 9.2%. Click here to find Cheese brands

The market for dairy juice blends performed well during the economic downturn, unlike other dairy beverages such as drinking yoghurt. Dairy juice blends experienced 1.3% volume growth in the base year while the value of the market shrunk by a marginal 0.4%. The negative value growth was primarily because of marginal price increases seen over the past year as well as the result of packaging shifts. 2010 saw volume reductions in the 500ml and 350ml pack volumes which in turn led to value decline as smaller packs are relatively more expensive than larger ones on a per litre basis. Larger pack sizes such as the 950ml/1litre pack experienced good growth, which further contributed to value decline, as these are sold at a lower Rand per litre price.

Historically, the prepared custard market saw good volume increases year on year, with the category growing steadily. However, in recent years the healthy growth rate has started to dwindle. While producers have attempted to prop the category volumes up through marketing drives, this has not been sufficient to bolster the category volumes to the growth levels seen previously. It is believed that the recession seen within 2009 and spilling over into 2010 undermined prepared custard sales as consumers were forced to curtail spending on luxury goods in favour of essential items. While there was some limited volume growth recorded for 2010 it should be borne in mind that there was a level of discounting for the period which served to reduce the average price and make category more appealing from an affordability perspective. The majority of this product is channeled into the retail sector, which comprises over two thirds of the total market. Wholesale is the second largest channel within the prepared custard market, accounting for a 14.9% share of the overall volume. Only conservative volume growth is anticipated for the short term.
