Chr. Hansen Holding A/S and DSM are the Leading Key Players in the Starter Cultures Market
Europe is one of the major consumers of starter culture globally, owing to the high demand from yogurt and cheese manufacturers. Due to this, a few leading starter culture manufacturers are established across this region, such as Chr. Hansen Holding A/S (Denmark), DSM (Netherlands), and LB Bulgaricum (Bulgaria).

The global starter cultures market is estimated to be valued at USD 1.1 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 1.5 billion by 2027, recording a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Starter cultures are living microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast, and mold. These cultures are deliberately added to milk to initiate fermentation and produce the desired products. The majority of primary starter cultures consist of different species of bacteria, such as Lactobacillus, Lactococcus, and Streptococcus. Lactic starters are used in a variety of applications such as preservation, lowering of redox potential, stabilization, proteolysis, and lipolysis. Apart from the demand for starter cultures in terms of quality, safety, technological effectiveness, and economics, other attributes are also considered while selecting strains for different non-alcoholic beverages.
