All around the world, Savencia Fromage & Dairy strives to satisfy the huge diversity in the expectations of consumers thanks to its delicious cheeses, renowned for their high quality.
A HIGHLY DIVERSE MARKET

 
Cheese consumption is international and includes the universal expectations of enjoyment, nutrition and practicality. The desire for variety and the diverse ways in which cheese can be consumed are major components in its demand, and change in step with lifestyles. For example, the simplification of everyday meals has led to increased demand for products that are easy to cook and use. In the same way, the increase in the trend for snacking has been a growth factor for cheese.

EVERY COUNTRY HAS ITS OWN CONSUMPTION HABITS

  • Cheese consumption changes significantly from one country to another, in terms of the quantity and way it is eaten, based on the relative strength of the cheese-eating culture.
    In France, the country with the highest consumption, it is eaten every day at lunchtime and in the evening, traditionally at the end of the meal, but now also as fast food or as a main course, in the form of raclette, for example.

  • In northern and central Europe, cheese is mostly eaten on bread, or as a spread, and is often used as an ingredient in cooking. In Germany, the traditional dinner consists of cheese spread on bread and cold meats (known as “Abendbrot”). This means that cheese consumption is very diverse, including hard, soft, fresh and processed cheeses.

  • Italians mainly value cheese as an essential culinary ingredient to dishes such as pasta and pizza.
    For Americans cheese is mainly eaten outside the home as fast food, in burgers or on pizzas.
