Switzerland is famous for cheese, but it now imports more cheese than it exports. This is because other countries sell cheaper milk in Switzerland. It is difficult for Swiss farmers to match their price. Many farmers have given up. They cannot make money. Farmers are making less cheese … just enough for their own population.

High quality Swiss cheese is on the menu of many restaurants. Many restaurants are replacing Swiss cheese with cheese from other countries. However, the Swiss are eating more cheese than ever. They ate an average of 22.9 kg per person in 2022. A dairy farmer said cheese is a big part of life in Switzerland.
