     Cheese - Foreign Type

     Report 2 - Released on January 09, 2019

     In Germany, cheese production schedules are active. However, the expansion in volumes
     produced was somewhat restrained by limited milk accessibility. In the coming months, more
     milk is expected to go to the manufacturing of cheese. Current growing competition in the
     export market is affecting Germany international sales as cheese is the most important
     exported dairy product in the country. Nonetheless, global demand is still lively. Germany
     cheese imports from other countries have diminished due to their higher domestic supplies.
     In the U.S., the prices for wholesale blue, gorgonzola, parmesan Italy, and Romano increased
     $.0475, but Swiss cheese prices declined $.0625. All other prices are unchanged compared to
     the preceding week.
