Older Consumers account for 23% of the Russian Dairy market by value, the highest share of any age group.

No age group consumes Dairy products disproportionally, with market shares closely matching the country's population profile.
Not only do a large proportion of Russian consumers, particularly in the Cheese and Butter & Spreadable Fats categories, highlight that specific consumer trends have an influence on their consumption; this translates into a significant proportion of actual value being directly influenced as well. Consumer are therefore acting on these trends enough to ensure that targeting them, in the right categories, is essential to success.
Private label penetration is low, reaching at 12.5% in Milk. One driver of this is the fragmented nature of the Russian retail market, with private labels typically more successful in mature, concentrated retail markets.
