With increasing cases of lactose intolerance, there has been a rising demand for dairy products like cheese with reduced lactose content. Organic milk is also a significant emerging market due to the increasing health and environmental consciousness among the consumers who perceive it as natural and sustainable. The market in North America is also being driven by growing innovations in dairy products. The easy availability of dairy products with widening distribution channels like supermarkets and hypermarkets are also aiding the market growth.
The US is a major market in the region and is also one of the leading exporters of dairy products. Margin Protection Program for Dairy by USDA is incentivising production even with declining sales, resulting in a growing milk oversupply. Producers are converting the excess milk to items like milk powder and butter, which have a longer shelf life than liquid milk. While a new trade deal with Canada gives the US 3.6% tariff-free access to Canada’s dairy market, it might prove detrimental to the growing dairy market in Canada as it scraps the Class 7 scheme which regulated the prices of certain dairy products like skimmed milk powder. The Canadian dairy industry is one of the leading agricultural sectors in the country and contributes significantly to the country’s GDP.
