Mozzarella is America’s favorite cheese

U.S. cheese availability stood at 33 pounds per person in 2011. Mozzarella edged out cheddar as America's favorite cheese, with the two cheeses together accounting for 63 percent of cheese availability in 2011. Per capita cheese availability has almost tripled since 1970, when it was 11.4 pounds per person. Cheese owes much of its growth to the spread of Italian and Mexican cuisines and to innovative, convenient packaging.
