In Asia-Pacific region, China holds the maximum market share in producing cheese for both adults and children.

Cheese is a type of dairy product made up of protein and fat from milk, especially from the milk of cows, buffalo, sheep, and goats. It is considered a healthy food in China. According to the Chinese Nutrition Society, more than 32% of Chinese consumers are prone to purchase cheese products for their daily food consumption. The taste and texture of the cheese are determined mainly by the type of milk-producing animal. It helps dairy farms such as Mengniu Dairy Corporation and Sanyuan to produce such quality-based products for their Chinese consumers. As cheese is a source of proteins and calcium, therefore, these natural nutritious ingredients are helpful for a child’s height, body, and muscle growth. Consumers from China are fond of consuming high-quality cheese products, especially foods such as burgers, pizza, sandwiches, and others.
