In the U.S. 200 billion pounds per year of fake “Italian” cheese

During the last year, in the United States more than 200 billion pounds of  "Italian" cheese such as Asiago, Parmesan, Provolone, Mozzarella, Gorgonzola have been produced but without having nothing to do with Made in Italy. This is what emerges from an analysis of Coldiretti, the Federation of Italian farmers.

.According to Coldiretti, in the U.S. the market of fake Italian cheese obtained mainly in Wisconsin, California and in the State of New York is worth € 5 billion and accounts for over 80% of Italian cheese’ sales: in other words, in 8 cases out of 10 U.S. consumers buy "Italian" products, but ​​entirely made in the USA. It is a serious deception, Coldiretti states.
