Cheese – bringing taste and texture to the table

The global consumption of cheese increases every year and growth is predicted to continue. Expansion of the fast food industry combined with changing lifestyles in emerging economies are boosting the global demand.

But cheese is hardly a new invention. In 1974, Russian explorers found a cheese block in the permafrost of the Siberian tundra that was dated to be at least 2,000 years old – and still said to be an unrivalled delicacy.
