This report supplies information on the competitive performances of the
operators of the Mozzarelle Italian market: competitive performances by segment,
market shares by segment, by distribution channel, breakdown by geographical
area, production shares and export quotas by destination countries are studied
in depth in this report.
• Product technology: There are two distinct techniques used for the production
of mozzarella cheese:
• traditionally curdled mozzarella. Milk is curdled using rennet (lactic acid
bacteria) only. Mozzarella produced by this method is eligible for Traditional
Specialty Guaranteed (TSG) status according to European Union regulations, as
long as several other conditions are met. These conditions include the use of
separate structures for receiving and storing raw milk and the use of natural
milk starter cultures prepared from fresh raw milk;
• mozzarella curdled using citric acid. milk is curdled using citric acid or a
combination of rennet and citric acid.
• Purpose: Household consumption of mozzarella is widespread in Italy at both
lunch and dinner. Non-household consumption is chiefly related to pizzerias.
• Client categories:
• Direct clients : supermarkets, grocery stores, cheese shops, take-away shops,
delicatessens, wholesalers and street vendors;
• End clients : families, restaurants and caterers. (Industrial level customers,
mainly those who use mozzarella to produce frozen pizzas, are not covered in
The sector can be segmented according to:
• Type of raw material used:
• cow's milk: fresh cheese, stretched and kneaded to a delicate consistency,
made with cow's milk;
• water buffalo milk: fresh cheese, stretched and kneaded to a delicate
consistency, made with 100% water buffalo milk or a mixture of buffalo and cow
milk. (N.B. 100% water buffalo mozzarella includes ""Mozzarella di Bufala
Campana DOP"", i.e. buffalo mozzarella with Protected Designation of Origin
status, as well as mozzarella made from water buffalo milk but produced outside
the PDO areas).
• Mode of consumption:
• Table mozzarella which can be broken down further into:
• Pre-packaged mozzarella of a pre-determined for self-service purchasing in
hermetically sealed individual packages;
• gourmet mozzarella of variable weight for full service sales, generally
distributed to retailers in large, sealed containers);
• mozzarella for cooking, used as toppings on pizzas and other foods, this type
is generally sold in larger packages than mozzarella intended for direct
consumption; these packages normally do not contain liquid surrounding the
cheese, but instead are vacuum packs or sealed paper wraps;
• Distribution channel:
• retail, also includes street vendors and producers' outlets
• restaurants and caterers, for both cooking mozzarella (generally for pizzas)
and table mozzarella.
Databank’s methodology for Competitors reports begins with a careful screening
to identify the main organisations that are representative of a given sector.
Several one-to-one interviews are then conducted with the selected organisations.
Questionnaires are sent to all the leading companies on an annual basis. The
information collected is then verified by an expert in the particular sector
using a system of counterchecks to guarantee that the information is entirely
reliable and consistent. The process is then completed using Cerved Group’s
proprietary information about Italian enterprises. All Competitors reports also
include details concerning the strategies and performances of the leading
companies in each sector.
