The dairy industry is a business that has been rapidly changing, and is likely to have further significant change in store over the next several years. Earlier this month, Tetra Pak’s 7th annual dairy index took a look at some of the challenges and opportunities that the industry will have to navigate over the next decade. In a similar vein, New Nutrition Business has released a report and infographic detailing upcoming trends that should come into fashion as the overall demand for milk products continues to rise.

According to FoodMagazine, the key concept to describe upcoming trends is “Dairy 2.0,” a sort of shorthand for a fundamental shift in the dairy industry away from added ingredients and toward healthier and more creative products:

“Dairy, more than any other category, is perfectly positioned to profit from the most important consumer trends shaping the food industry,” says [Julian Mellentin, Director of New Nutrition Business]. “…Science shows that dairy is nature’s whole food, with more benefits that are bringing new opportunities,” says Mellentin. “It’s too early for companies to use these benefits for marketing purposes, but over the next decade they will support dairy’s ‘naturally healthy’ identity.”

 

From creative innovations like savory yogurts to functional innovations like dairy products better targeted toward improving digestive health and protein needs, the industry is moving toward change. For a better idea of the trends that are coming and how to meet them, check out the infographic below:
