  • The industry is already facing a decline in the number of farms (-2.7% in recent months)

  • The industry has been hit by a 10% rise in raw materials prices in 2021.

In recent years, Sodiaal has adopted a very aggressive external growth strategy, with the purchase and merger of several cheese dairies and other agricultural cooperatives.
