Cheese consumption per capita in the Netherlands 2010-2021

The Dutch are not just enthusiastic producers and exporters of cheese, they also love to eat cheese. The per capita consumption of cheese in the Netherlands was around 13.1 kilos in 2018, and according to a recent Statista forecast, this was expected to remain stable in the next three years.

 Per capita milk consumption 

  The outlook for other types of dairy products was not always equally bright. The consumption of milk and cream for example decreased significantly in the last few years, from over 100 liters per person in 2010 to under 90 today. This trend is expected to continue, and by 2021 the annual milk consumption is estimated to be around 87 liters per capita.

Per capita butter consumption

  Producers of butter in the Netherlands need to worry less. Between 2010 and 2017, the average consumption of butter per person increased nearly year on year, peaking in 2016 at 4.3 kilos. In 2017, the per capita consumption amounted to four kilos on average.
