Cheese is a delicious, convenient, and adaptable dish that has been a staple in our diet for hundreds of years. Cheese is high in nutrients and plays an important role in a balanced diet. When it comes to Australian cheese, we are spoiled for choice; it lends flavor to many popular recipes, including lasagna, pasta, and toasties, to name a few. Furthermore, cheese is the ultimate entertainer. Cheese provides a variety of minerals, including protein, vitamin A, vitamin B12, riboflavin, phosphorus, and zinc. In fact, cheese is the second most important source of calcium in the Australian diet, which is significant given that one in every two Australians does not get enough calcium each day. Calcium is an essential vitamin for good health, especially bone and dental health. Australia today produces over 160 different types of cheese, each with its own distinct flavor, texture, and nutrient profile. Cheddar is the most popular cheese in Australia; however Brie, Mozzarella, Blue, Parmesan, and Goats are all popular. According to the report, "Australia Cheese Market Overview, 2027," published by Bonafide Research, the market is anticipated to add USD 1.06 Billion by 2027. Rising consumer health consciousness and a growing preference for dairy products are propelling the cheese sector ahead. The business is primarily being driven by rising use in the restaurant and food service industries. Growth is higher in developing regions due to increased disposable incomes and the expansion of fast-food restaurants or quick service restaurants (QSR). Because of improvements in the food processing business, various plant-based and organic varieties of the product have been launched in the market. This is likely to benefit the expansion of the Australian cheese industry.

In Australia, where processed cheese sales are the lowest, there is some push toward expanding the sector by using plant-based ingredients. Dairy-free processed cheeses might appeal to both health-conscious and environmentally conscientious consumers. Dairy-free and lactose-free cheeses offer substantial prospects for innovation in the region's cheese sector. Another health-conscious cheese trend is probiotic cheese, which has been steadily increasing in Australia and New Zealand since 2017. The COVID outbreak has likely increased consumer interest in probiotics for immune support. Bran Courts Probiotic Cottage Cheese and Paris Creek Farms Bio-Dynamic Low Fat Quark with Live Probiotic Cultures are two market examples. However, the majority of the region's recent probiotic cheese introductions have been vegan cheeses such as Sprout & Kernel Pepper Corn Cultured Cashew Cheese and Kehoe's Kitchen Basil Cashew Cheese.

The higher fat content of cheese is expected to be one of the noticeable features among other constraints restricting the global dairy industry's growth potential. Cheese consumption is restricted among the obese population due to the negative health effects of higher fat content.
Covid-19 Impact: During the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the business was severely disrupted due to changing demand. The worldwide lockdowns prompted the foodservice industry to close, cutting demand for all processed food goods dramatically. Furthermore, costs are likely to reduce as high-quality products become less desirable. In contrast, increased adoption of low-cost varieties at wholesale prices from retail shops for home cooking is expected to balance the supply chain. Following the pandemic, the Cheese market is likely to benefit from the re-establishment of the foodservice sector and renewed cheese processing capacity.
