Swiss Cheese Crisis

Economists have warned the strong Swiss franc is pushing the country into recession – and even punching holes into cheese exports. There are more than 600 dairies in Switzerland producing traditional cheese using only local milk and local ingredients. More than 50 percent of Swiss products are sold abroad, and with the franc increasing against the euro and dollar, products are becoming more expensive abroad.
