Emmental end is nigh

This article was originally published in Foodnews

ARLA Foods will cease production of emmental cheese by the end of the year. The company's Denmarkbased Aars Dairy, which produces emmental only, will be closed by October. This comes at a time when sales of yellow cheese such as emmental have been under pressure for some time, while milk powder prices have soared due to increased demand and low stocks. Arla plans to focus on more profitable products, particularly milk powder and mozzarella. Aars Dairy produces 11 000 tonnes of emmental annually, which are sold in France, the US, Japan, Italy, Germany and the Middle East.
