     Cheese - Foreign Type

     Report 11 - Released on March 14, 2018

     In Germany, semi-hard cheese and sliced cheese demand continue their higher trend.
     Additional requests are harder to fulfill due to limited stocks' availability in the spot
     market. Contractual orders are taking most of the cheese. The EU domestic cheese sales and
     exports to other countries are lively. Cheese production is ongoing following normal
     seasonal output levels for this time of the year. In the United States, the prices for
     wholesale blue, gorgonzola, parmesan, and Romano increased by $.0475, but all other prices
     held steady compared to the previous week.
