This report is intended to provide the reader with an overview of the latest trends and structural changes in total world cheese production, trade and consumption.
It is based mainly on a questionnaire, prepared by the Danish Dairy Board, and sent to the IDF member countries. Replies were received from 26 countries, representing approximately 80% of total world cheese production from cow milk. The information given in the questionnaire has been supplemented by the usual statistical sources, such as FAO, OECD, ZMP, etc.
A further three countries answered the questionnaire but cheese production by types as well as consumption by types were not possible. A supplement includes the market description in these countries.
This report is an update of the results presented in Bulletin 326/1997.
