Ottawa's defeat in dairy dispute with U.S. could mean more choice at the cheese counter for consumer

Calgary Herald: "A wider world of American cheese could soon be available in Canadian dairy aisles following the federal government’s defeat this week in a high-profile trade dispute, according to the International Cheese Council of Canada, an Ottawa-based body of importers. Advertisement Article content The trickle of U.S. cheese crossing the border has historically consisted of mostly industrial-sized chunks that get sliced or grated and packaged as domestic brands, or used in frozen pizzas, the cheese council said. Meanwhile the high-end stuff, the artisanal, terroir-specific varieties, are mostly shut out, including American blues and Asiago from a vibrant scene in Wisconsin. Not to mention, “Vermont is heavily into goat cheeses,” said Joe Dal Ferro, an industry veteran who serves as the council’s vice-chair. “There’s a wide variety of products that Canadians currently don’t have access to.”"
