"Italy, renowned for its culinary excellence and rich gastronomic traditions, is witnessing a notable rise in the plant-based milk market. Plant-based milk, also known as non-dairy or alternative milk, refers to milk derived from plant sources such as soy, almond, oat, rice, and coconut. In recent years, Italy has seen a growing demand for plant-based alternatives to traditional dairy milk, driven by changing consumer preferences, health-consciousness, and sustainability concerns.Milk is traditionally a part of various cultures. Recently, its importance has been declining due to health concerns about hormonal changes, allergens, and nutrient quality. This has led to a change inconsumer habits towards plant-based dairy products, which are rich sources of vitamins, proteins,fats, and carbohydrates. The younger population is increasingly becoming lactose intolerant due tochanges in lifestyle and diet, further supported by the vegan diet trend, which led to increasedacceptance of plant-based milk. Concerns about animal welfare and cruelty, as well as the impact onthe environment, are increasing the demand for plant-based milk. Lack of consumer awareness about the use of plant-based milk among the rural population further hampers growth.
