South Africa Dairy Manufacturing Report 2020-2021 with Profiles of 33 Companies, Including Leading Companies such as Clover, Woodlands and Lactalis


DUBLIN, March 2, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Manufacturing of Dairy Products in South Africa 2021 “report has been added to offer.

This report covers the manufacture of dairy products in South Africa and includes information on the volume of products sold and market share by product, developments, trends and transactions in securities, regulation and other influencing factors.

Manufacture of dairy products:

There has been considerable consolidation in the dairy industry at the production level over the past 20 years, and large farms account for 80% of the South Africa total milk production. Rising production costs, imports, shrinking producers, drought, changing consumer preferences, regulation and competition from international companies have created challenges, especially for small producers.

As the number of milk producers continued to decline, milk production increased, indicating fewer commercial farms with larger herds. Large farms producing more than 5,000 liters per day provide 80% of the South Africa total milk production.

Changes in consumption:

Some consumers are turning to dairy products that are low in lactose and sugar due to growing health concerns, and the demand for herbal products is increasing. Consumers are driving innovation in dairy products such as protein and extended shelf life drinks, gut health innovation using probiotics and fermented milk drinks, and new flavors and products with improved texture.


As fresh milk is highly perishable, the dairy industry has been hit hard by the crisis. There has been a sharp drop in demand for some dairy products such as cheese, as the initial lockdown included the closure of restaurants and hotels. The decline was partly offset by increased household sales of longer shelf life dairy products, such as UHT milk. Disruptions in the milk supply chain have prevented some small dairy farmers from getting their milk to market.

There are profiles of 33 companies, including dominant companies such as Clover, Woodlands and Lactalis and relatively small dairy processors that distribute regionally like Douglasdale and Coega Dairy.
