Cheers for cheese: Here’s why you can expect to see more Brie and other European cheeses at the grocery store
Get out your cheese boards: Imports of European cheeses such as Brie and Parmigiano Reggiano have nearly doubled since last year. In June alone, imports were up 143 percent, reports Bloomberg. What explains the Euro cheese resurgence? Earlier this year, the Biden administration and the European Union called a truce over a 17-year-old dispute related to European subsidies for Boeing rival Airbus. The easing of tariffs, coupled with an upswing in the number of U.S. companies making European-style cheeses domestically, means you can expect to pay less overall for imported cheeses.
