The global cheese market size reached US$ 77.6 in 2021. Cheese is a dairy product made by coagulating the protein casein obtained from cow, goat, sheep, and buffalo milk. It is a rich source of nutrients, such as phosphorous, calcium, zinc, vitamin A and B12, and high-quality proteins that are vital for building strong bones and muscles. It also has a longer shelf life as compared to other dairy products. Moreover, as a large variety of cheese is produced in different parts of the globe, its color, taste, and texture depend on the milk, pasteurization process, butterfat content, bacteria, mold, processing, and aging.

Whether from cow, goat, or buffalo milk, cheese is enjoyed by individuals worldwide in a wide variety of different ways for its flavor, versatility, and health benefits. There are many different types of cheeses with their own unique flavor, texture, and history, and some of the most popular on the market include cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, and feta. One of the other cheese which is famous in the world is Gruyere type. Gruyere cheese originated in Switzerland and is named after a Swiss village. It is a creamy and semi-soft cheese that has a natural brown rind which is hard and dry. Gruyere is full of complex flavors with the first bite being fruity in taste but eventually leaving you with a nutty aftertaste.

The largest cheese manufacturing company in the world is Nestle, with a dairy product revenue of $94 billion. Some of the other players in the market include Danone, Lactalis Group, Fonterra, Friesland Campina and Arla Foods.
