Dairy market in Spain - statistics & facts

Dairy consumption continues to be high in the European Union, with milk consumption equaling 33 million tons in 2020. In Spain, the Lactalis Iberia Group is the leading company in the dairy products industry. The company originated in France and is the owner of well-known brands such as Président or Puleva. Lactalis Iberia generated more than 1.2 billion euros worth of revenue in 2019.

The fluid milk market

Although milk has traditionally been part of the daily diet of Spaniards, especially at breakfast, there has been a downward trend in fluid milk consumption since 2000. The growing impact of plant-based beverages, awareness of intensive livestock farming, diets that avoid animal product consumption such as veganism, growing number sof lactose-intolerant consumers, and the decrease in birth rates are some of the factors that have caused this reduction. However, the low price of milk plays in its favor. In fact, the average milk price was lower than 0.7 euros in discount stores and supermarkets.

Cheese and yogurt, the dominant dairy products

Yogurt is the most consumed dairy product in Spain, at approximately 452 million kilograms in 2019. Among yogurt types, skimmed yogurt is the most preferred by Spanish households. Cheese is the dairy product Spanish consumers spend the most on. The variety of cheese produced throughout Spain contributes to the fact that this product stands out on the dairy market. Some cheese varieties are cataloged with a certificate of origin and enjoy international recognition.
