Healthy eating has increased the demand for functional cheese that adds nutritional value to the product. Cheese is high in proteins, omega-3 fatty acids, and minerals. The emerging trend of healthy snacking has fueled demand for snacks, including those sold in the retail sector. Furthermore, clean-label milk products are becoming more popular among consumers due to their nutritional and safer counterparts. Organic milk is becoming more popular as conventional milk is now linked to harmful chemicals to human health. This factor boosts demand for plant-based cheese made from almond, cashew, or soy milk. The hypermarket and supermarket segments generated the most revenue, owing to an increase in demand for quick-service restaurants' online food delivery, which drives cheese market demand, and convenience stores ranked second. Loblaws is not only one of the best grocery stores in Canada but also the largest food retailer in the country. Sobeys Inc. and Metro Inc. are also the most popular food retailers in Canada. Covid-19 Impact: During the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the business was severely disrupted due to changing demand. The worldwide lockdowns prompted the foodservice industry to close, cutting demand for all processed food goods dramatically. Furthermore, costs are likely to reduce as high-quality products become less desirable. In contrast, increased adoption of low-cost varieties at wholesale prices from retail shops for home cooking is expected to balance the supply chain. Following the pandemic, the Cheese market is likely to benefit from the re-establishment of the foodservice sector and renewed cheese processing capacity.
