Buffaddar Cheese

By Bryan • china • 2 May 2006

China may tap its rich buffalo milk resources to meet the growing domestic demand for cheese, which has become so popular on the Chinese dinner table thanks to the prevalence of western food.

China has 22.76 million buffaloes that together produce 2.65 million tons of milk a year, says Zheng Hua, an expert attending the ongoing fifth Asian Buffalo Congress in Nanning, south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region

I still have difficulty finding decent cheese at a reasonable price and quantity. I had not considered the possibility that Buffalos would be the salvation of the western fetish…or that there was even an Asian Buffalo Congress.

Keep an eye open, you might find imported Buffalo cheese at your local deli in the near future.

  1. I haven’t noticed cheese becoming more common. But I really hope it does!

    even if it comes from a buffalo…

  2. Unfortunately, neither have I.

    Great site by the way!
