Yoghurt is a basic food that can be enjoyed by people of all age groups for a healthy life. Yoghurt is known and consumed all over the world. However, its consumption can be traced back to very early times in Turkey. Both homemade and manufactured yoghurts are consumed in Turkey. Average yearly yoghurt consumption in Turkey is about 17.6 kg/capita. Spending on yoghurt constitutes 2.8% of total household food expenses. The aim of this study was to analyse socio-economical factors that affect homemade or manufactured yoghurt consumption of households. Data from a questionnaire conducted on 302 families living in Tokat Province of Turkey in 2005 were used. Data were analysed using binomial logit model. Of the variables used in the model, household income, work status of woman and number of elderly people in the household were significant in affecting the preference for homemade or manufactured yoghurt consumption. It was concluded that governments should make decisions to promote yoghurt manufacturing having better hygienic conditions and to facilitate the production of reasonably cheaper yoghurt.
