What the ‘Swiss Cheese’ is up to in China’s new market for cheese
In China, you’ll find a new cheese: butterfly cheese.
It’s grown in a region of the country where, for decades, there’s been little milk and no cheese.
And with no milk supply, the cheese was a scarce commodity, and China was a natural market for farmers to produce it.
It has the same texture as Swiss cheese, and tastes similar to other varieties of Swiss cheese.
“Butterflies are the perfect symbol for this moment,” says David Schmitt, a food writer in New York.
“We’ve never seen anything like it.”
For a time, butterfly cheese had been used in traditional Chinese medicine, though it had little use in the market.
Now, China is a market for butterfly cheese, with hundreds of producers.
Butterfly cheese is made from cow milk and can be sold in supermarkets in China, the United States, Australia, South Korea, and other countries.
The dairy farmers who make it can earn a profit of up to 20 percent on their exports, though Schmitt estimates that some farmers have earned more than 60 percent.
This year, China became the world’s biggest cheese market, according to the International Dairy Export Council, which represents dairy producers.
This is partly because the country is trying to diversify its economy away from its reliance on imported milk and cheese.
But more than ever, China’s demand for milk and other dairy products has grown.
“It’s an enormous market,” says Daniel Hirschfeld, an expert on Chinese milk and dairy trade at New York University.
“The Chinese are very good at sourcing products, and they’re looking for new ways to expand their supply chain.”

“A lot of people in China have seen milk, cheese, meat, and eggs, and so they’re trying to make the transition to a dairy alternative,” says Hirschfield.
“I think that’s the real challenge.
This transition is going to be tough for the next generation.”
The market is growing rapidly.
According to the World Economic Forum, China has more than 4.3 billion people.
“In the next few years, we expect China to overtake the U and Japan as the world dairy market,” Schmitt says.
The Chinese market is a global phenomenon, and it’s been growing rapidly since the late 1970s, according a study by the World Bank and the U., and the National Bureau of Economic Research.
The market has expanded to include dairy products ranging from cheese to yogurt.
According for the last five years, China was the world market for the milk products that make up the U-shaped curve of global dairy prices.
For example, in 2012, Chinese farmers produced about 3 million tons of cheese and cheese products.
Today, they produce 1.5 million tons.
According the World Food Programme, China exported about $1.5 billion worth of milk in 2014, a 50 percent increase over 2013.
According a report by the International Federation of Dairy Producers, in 2014 China exported more than half of the world cheese market.
That year, it exported 1.1 million tons, which was up from less than 100,000 tons in 2012.
“Chinese milk has become a major export for dairy in the world, even though it is a highly subsidized product,” says Shashank Gupta, the chief executive officer of the International Cheese Association.
The International Dairy Trade Association estimates that China is now the world leader in milk exports, with more than $30 billion of exports to dairy products.
But the Chinese are not the only market for milk in China.
China’s domestic dairy producers have grown rapidly in the past several years, thanks to a glut of domestic milk and to new products.
China has been exporting more than 10 million metric tons of milk to Europe, according the International Monetary Fund.
The World Bank predicts that China will overtake Japan as a global milk producer by 2020.
But for now, China and Japan are both experiencing a major slowdown in their economies.
The Japanese economy is in a tailspin, and the Chinese economy is growing strongly.
Japan is on track to overtake China as the third-largest dairy producer by the year 2020.
Meanwhile, the Chinese dairy industry is facing an unexpected challenge.
China is still growing faster than the rest of the global economy.
It grew by 6.3 percent in the first quarter of this year, up from 5.3 in the same quarter a year earlier.
China also grew faster than many other countries, including the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, and Germany.
And China is also growing faster as a share of the U, S., and global economy than any other major economy.
“China’s economy has always been growing at a slower rate than the global average,” says John Vigna, the director of research at the World Resources Institute.
“There’s no sign of slowing down.”
In addition, China recently announced it would invest $7 billion in new dairy
