Blue cheese, also known as blue vein cheese, is a generic term widely used to describe cheese made from sheep’s milk, cow’s milk, or goat’s milk, and ripened with cultures of the mold Penicillium. Several variants of this cheese are available in the market, including gorgonzola, Castello double crème blue, Roquefort, stilton, and Castello traditional Danish blue. Blue cheese is rich in essential vitamins and minerals, and contains significant amount of proteins, thus witnessing increased demand among consumers. It is used as a key ingredient in numerous food products such as dips, spreads, and desserts, as well as is used as a topping in salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and burgers.


Shift in consumers eating habits, especially of urban residents, toward fast food has led to increase in demand for blue cheese. In addition, rise in number of quick serve restaurants using cheese to enhance the taste & flavor of their cuisines and consumer preferences for experimenting with new flavors boost the growth of the market. Furthermore, longer shelf life of blue cheese, increase in demand for protein-rich food products, and rise in disposable income propel the growth of the global market. However, increase in health consciousness among consumers and rise in cost of milk & dairy products hamper the growth of the market. On the contrary, countries manufacturing blue cheese can expand the market base by exporting it to regions where the population and consumption of dairy products has augmented, such as Asia-Pacific and the Middle Eastern countries. This can be viewed as an opportunity for the manufacturers to target the untapped market.
