Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/11/2014 -- Sales of cheese in Italy continue to be governed by new eating patterns, with a move towards organic and reduced fat cheese, which meet consumers' demand for more natural and healthier products, as well as growing demand for high-quality natural cheese, mainly certified unprocessed and soft cheese. Sales of hard cheese are suffering, whilst there is growing demand for DOP (Denominazione d'Origine Protetta- Certified Origin) cheeses and fresh products.
Thanks to the strength of its brand portfolio, which includes Bel Paese, Galbanino, Galbani, Santa Lucia, Invernizzi, Vallelata and Locatelli, Lactalis Gruppo Italia is expected to lead cheese with an 11% share of value sales in 2013. Lactalis Gruppo regularly launches new products and attracts consumers through marketing campaigns. Through its logistics network, with a warehouse located at Ospedaletto Lodigiano, and the distribution network of biG Srl which operates 108 commercial units and 1,200 vans in Italy, Lactalis Gruppo Italia serves approximately 70,000 customers.
