According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "GCC Dairy Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the GCC dairy market exhibited moderate growth during 2016-2021. Dairy refers to a business enterprise or facility involved in the preparation of food products prepared from the milk of mammals, including buffaloes, goats, cows and camels. These milk-based items are an essential source of nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and proteins, that help in maintaining optimum blood pressure while regulating the fluid balance in the body. Additionally, they contain riboflavin that aids in red blood cell production and supports body growth. Also, their consumption helps in improving the natural balance of the gut microbiota that results in a strong immune system and improved metabolism.
