Only a handful of countries famous for producing cheese. Switzerland one of them. However, for the first time, Switzerland is more cheese than it . The reason is that in the 1990s, Switzerland up its milk market. This meant other countries could milk in Switzerland.

However, eateries and supermarkets around the world may to replace Swiss cheeses with those from England, France or Venezuela.
