Chef Barbara elaborated, “One ounce of natural cheese, such as Cheddar, Jack, or Mozzarella, contains approximately 20% of a person’s recommended daily calcium intake. Those who are lactose-sensitive, or lactose-intolerant can still enjoy cheese if they eat natural hard (aged) or soft-ripened varieties, which contain little or no lactose.”

Did you know Malaysians' appetite for cheese continues to grow? The current cheese market is worth RM1.094 billion in 2023 and it's expected to raise annually by 7.52% (CAGR 2023 - 2027). 

Being the largest agricultural marketing board in California, The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB) recently conducted an event to educate Malaysian consumers about the high-quality cheeses that carry the Real California Milk seal. Besides that, there's also a wide repertoire of dairy products under the CMAB portfolio which are not only limited to cheeses, milk, butter, yogurt, and ice cream.

Malaysia Country Representative for CMAB Eddie Saw said more Malaysians are starting to appreciate the quality of California dairy products like cheeses and ice creams that carry the Real California Milk seal. The cheeses are so good that you can enjoy them as they are any time of the day. 

“Different cheeses offer their own unique quality and function – which open up a whole world of culinary possibilities via a wide selection of cheesy indulgence. It is important to note that the cheeses that carry the Real California Milk offer are authentic natural cheese. Our cheeses use 100% real milk from cows in California and have won awards in the United States as well as abroad,” enthused Eddie. 

The USA is the largest cow’s milk producer in the world and California is the top-milk producing and second largest cheese-producing state. Approximately 50 cheesemakers are producing more than 250 different varieties and styles of cheeses using exclusively California milk. 

California dairy producers are very cognisant about the health, comfort, and safety of their cows and take animal care very seriously. California is home to many modern, technologically advanced, and efficient dairy operations in the world, with best practices for herd comfort and care - driven by the quest for a cleaner and more sustainable future.  California leads the U.S. in sustainable dairy farming practices.
