The Korean Cheese Shortage

(..and I don’t mean the Wondergirls.)

“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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
