Industrial cheese manufacturers | France

With nearly 400 varieties listed, France is the land of cheese. Cheese production is a concentrated sector dominated by a handful of stakeholders, such as Bel for example. The latter are either family groups (Bongrain specialises in milk processing) or cooperative groups (e.g. Sodiaal, Eurial). There are also dairy producers such as Lactalis.   

The French are among the world's leading consumers (24 kg/inhab/year) (1). The rise of mass distribution to the detriment of local shops has weakened the craft products sold in cheese factories. Today, most cheese is made industrially. The harmonisation of health rules imposed by Brussels is also a godsend for industrial cheese. The volatility of world prices for industrial dairy products is weakening manufacturers' profitability. 

The restructuring of the sector that began 10 years ago is continuing with the acquisition of Entremont by Sodiaal in early 2011. To gain market share, manufacturers rely on innovation (new formats, packaging) and communication (huge advertising budgets).
