The Indian mozzarella cheese market is projected to witness a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. The cheese was primarily reserved for sandwiches and foods that went well with evening meals or cocktail garnishes. Metropolitan regions consume cheese, which spreads more frequently than ever. In addition, producers are offering a variety of cheese products with distinct flavours, such as pepper, garlic, red chilli flakes, and oregano pickle, to suit the varied tastes and preferences of Indian consumers. Globally, there are 3,000 different kinds of cheese. India's shops and delis have roughly 40 different options.
Mozzarella cheese has become a staple in pizzas; there is a great demand for it. Compared to cheese manufactured from cow's milk, mozzarella made from buffalo milk has a higher concentration of proteins, minerals, and nutrients. Even though cheese is frequently used in fast food products like pasta, pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, wraps, tacos, cakes, garlic bread, etc., it is also a component of traditional Indian dishes like dosa, uttapam, and parathas. The demand for cheese is increasing due to the fast-food industry's robust expansion and the changing eating habits of the expanding working population.
Many international businesses are also engaging in the Indian mozzarella cheese market due to the rise in organized retail shops. Additionally, several producers are running marketing initiatives through various types of media like newspapers, television, and social media to raise consumer knowledge of the advantages of cheese. Most of India's specialty cheese, including mozzarella, is currently imported. But India is projected to overtake other countries as a major cheese supplier with higher quality investments in cheese production. Due to Russia's restrictions on European cheese exports owing to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, new markets are opening up for Indian dairy products. India is expected to decrease its reliance on imports, in line with the larger vision of creating an Aatmanirbhar Bharat, to the boost from the Mozzarella PLI, a non-tariff incentive that was specifically created to be compliant with international trade agreements, and is ready to launch a new White Revolution, this time powered by cheese.
