Soy Milk is the most valuable category in the Italian Soy Drinks market, with a market share of 51%. The second-largest category, Soy Desserts, is twice as large as the third-largest category, Soy Drinks.

Private label penetration is highest for Soy Milk, where 18% of the volume of products distributed is private label.
