Breaking New Ground: How Dairy Companies Can Navigate Its Next Growth Phase amid Market Slowdown?

With the slowdown in the macroeconomy and weak consumer demand, the Chinese dairy industry is experiencing a phase of deceleration and surplus. At the same time, influenced by factors such as consumption stratification and changes in population structure, the industry is entering a new phase of development, emphasizing both quantity and structural improvement. Consumers' demand for premium and healthy products is becoming increasingly significant, driving innovation and upgrades in niche categories within the industry. On the other hand, traditional supermarket channels are reaching their traffic limits, and dairy product sales channels are becoming increasingly diverse. Looking ahead, the industry faces both challenges and opportunities. How can enterprises break through in this new era and find new growth value points?
