Cheese consumption continues to rise

Cheesemakers in Door and Kewaunee counties are seeing more people buying their products, and not just because it is June Dairy Month. According to the International Dairy Foods Association, per capita cheese consumption has gone up 19 percent over the last decade, running opposite of where beverage milk has gone. A recent study by Tetra Pack, which packages food items, also showed that 36 percent of global consumers admitted eating a lot more cheese during the pandemic. Krohn Cheese Store manager Sally Vandermoss says people spending more time at home experimenting with different recipes has led to a wider variety of cheese being bought.

Supermarket Perimeter says total cheese sales totaled $3.4 billion in 2020, seeing overall category sales grow by more than 18 percent.
