The Cheese Manufacturing industry has faced turbulent conditions. Unprecedented commodity price volatility has been the main driver of both industry fortunes and woes. Global dairy prices reached near-record highs over 2007-08 and cheese prices rose 68.9%. This increase largely resulted from growth in dairy demand from the growing economies of South Asia, coupled with crippling drought conditions across most of Australia and New Zealand, which resulted in dramatic supply shortages and price increases. This significantly inflated industry revenue and export values over the past five years – until the global financial crisis reversed the trend.
