“But Asians can’t handle dairy products.”
That’s a debate for a later time.
Korean pizza makers have started raising prices because China is consuming a lot more dairy–so the price of cheese is going up.
I am going to agree with Matt on this topic, he said, “Cheese in Asia is a lie.”
By that logic, the prices of cheese are being artificially inflated on something that doesn’t exist. No one in Asia knows what real cheese is- Velveeta is a delicacy here. I’m going to melt some plastic on pizza and sell it at a discount. It’ll have the same cheesy sensation.
While it’s true that the cheese market isn’t very developed in Asia, it’s untrue that there is
only “plastic” cheese (in Korea). I can buy a variety of cheese at the grocery store here in
Jeju. I expect bigger cities would have a bigger selection.
I really wish people would hesitate to make broad statements about an entire continent. It’s
a bit boring.

Keep in mind that there is an actual cheese-producing region in Korea, Imsil–one of the only cheese regions in east Asia.
