Brits love French cheese

Raclette cheese

Wow! In 2012, almost 115,000 tonnes of French cheese were exported to the UK, according to this recent article in The Guardian. Of that, just under 2,995 tonnes were “pressed cooked” cheese, which includes abondance, comté, beaufort and emmental – up from 1,631 tonnes in 2000. Quelle surprise!

  1. Yup: there are many foods I would give up before cheese. I don’t really mind if it’s French, Swiss, British or American… I’m not sure I’ve yet met a cheese I didn’t like. It’s one of my big dieting downfalls 🙂
