Cheese Producers News: New Market Trends to Look Out For

The cheese producers in the Northeastern U.S. region have experienced considerable disruptions from the hot, humid weather and flooding in areas of New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire. As a result, milk production has been affected and the storage space for cheese is now scarce. Despite the challenges, the market prices for cheese blocks on industry cash exchanges closed at a good $1.4750 and rose to $1.5850 as of publishing this report. Furthermore, according to the National Retail Report, shredded cheese in 6-8-ounce packages was the most advertised conventional cheese product, with an advertised price of $2.40.
