As per the report published by Dairyreporter.com, in the year 2021, yogurt sales increased by more than 4% in the lockdown phase.

Also, many companies and dairy organizations focus on several research & development activities to develop better quality yogurt drinks.

Also, as the pandemic pushed more buyers to e-commerce platforms and fueled the increase in at-home food consumption, Epigamia, a yogurt and smoothie business turned to sell more products online.

Asia Pacific is estimated to capture the highest revenue share among all regions

Asia Pacific market is anticipated to grow at the fastest pace owing to population growth and an increasing inclination of consumers towards probiotic-rich food products. India, China, and Pakistan are the largest milk-producing nations.
