Dairy ingredients, especially butter, are highly valuable in the bakery industry. They bring taste, texture, and a nice colour to many products such as biscuits, cakes, and croissants.

Bakery is a broad market that can be split into two main segments:

  • Croissants & puff pastry
  • Cakes & biscuits

Bakery consumption can be characterised in two main ways:

  • Indulgence
  • On-the-go

Croissants, cakes or other pastries are often outdoor impulse purchases linked to pleasure and fulfilment.

Dairy ingredients – especially butter – are highly valued in the bakery industry. They bring taste, texture and colour to end-products. They can also be used to make value-added claims on packaging thanks to their natural image.
