Citrus Yogurt Market Scope of Current and Future Industry 2030

Changing dietary behaviors and the increasing popularity of ready-to-eat foods have been fuelling the demand for citrus yogurt, finds Future Market Insights (FMI) in a new study.

Citrus yogurt manufacturers are increasingly leveraging the potential of their offerings as potential alternatives to ice creams and food spreads, while also focusing on strategies towards product launches and geographical expansion.

While product launches remain key focus, some of the market players are focusing efforts toward expansion to strengthen their foothold.
