State of the Industry Report

The American Cheese Society (ACS) has released a Report of Key Findings from its inaugural 2016 State of the U.S. Artisan/Specialty Cheese Industry Survey. This report provides a snapshot of the small businesses that make up the community of artisan, farmstead, and specialty cheesemakers in America – a community that has been growing for years, with very little real data available to provide greater insight into this market segment. The survey attempts to fill that void by providing data reported directly from producers.

Print copies of the Report of Key Findings will be available at the American Cheese Society’s booth at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco (booth #5017) from January 22-24, 2017. A PDF copy of the report may also be downloaded by clicking on the graphic below.

For questions about this report, please contact Rebecca Orozco, ACS Marketing & Communications Director, at 720-328-2788.

The report was supported by funding from the nonprofit American Cheese Education Foundation.
