The Southeast Asian market is one of the highest growth markets in the world for dairy consumption. Food manufacturers are just now developing new applications that utilize various cheeses and butter. With the complexities associated with integrating dairy into various applications, food developers need an ingredient partner that has extensive food science experience and creative insights into regional cuisine.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Dairy Farmers of America, DairiConcepts brings talent, nimbleness, and experience in the Southeast Asia region to help your products become a local success.

As the Southeast Asian market for cheese matures, we can help snack food manufacturers lead the way by offering richer and bolder flavors for extruded, potato, nut, plantain and cracker-based snacks. “We find that [Southeast] Asia consumers require a sweeter cheese,” says Pete Pyeatt, director of product development at DairiConcepts LLP
Creating market distinction begins with your ingredient developer. We can enhance a variety of traditional soups and dipping sauces with subtle cheese notes that make a product stand apart from the competition.
