Reasons To Buy
Japan is one of the fastest ageing nations among developed countries. Consumers above the age of 65 accounted for 25% of the population in 2013, while children aged 14 and under made up only 13% of the population. While the lower number of children has resulted in reduced consumption of liquid milk, growing share of aging population have led to increased demand for Yogurt with greater health benefits. Milk price in Japan is one of the highest among the OECD countries. In recent times, Milk prices have spiralled upward, and this trend is expected to continue during 2013-2018 due to shrinking domestic production, the rise in input prices such as livestock fodder and fuel costs, and higher import prices, resulting from a tighter milk supply globally. Dairy Food being a typically volume driven sector, retailers in different distribution channel often engage in competing offers and discounts to attract more customers. This has encouraged consumers to buy products through different channels to avail the best offer and maximize their value for money. Incidence of large scale milk contamination in the country’s leading dairy company and recent reports of radiation detected in milk following nuclear crisis at Japan’s Fukushima plant have increased concerns over safety and health issues on dairy products.
