     Cheese - Foreign Type

     Report 10 - Released on March 07, 2018

     The European Union (EU) cheese production is active as milk loads are more than enough to
     meet production needs. Cheese prices in the EU remain flat this week. Interest from the
     international market is still higher, but not enough to absorb all the supplies of cheese
     available in the market. However, in Germany sliced cheese is hard to find in the spot
     market. In the United States, the prices for wholesale blue, gorgonzola, parmesan, and
     Romano increased $.0050, but Swiss cuts Switzerland decreased $.1600. All other prices held
     steady compared to the previous week.
