Pardon me for going on, but, too many people continue to claim the problem with farm milk price is falling demand.
In the above graph, I have taken mozzarella production and divided by the days in the month to adjust for the difference in the number of days in each month. The period covered is the period when all experts claimed everybody had all but stopped eating.
As can be seen by the trend line, on the graph, production of mozzarella rose steadily. Mozzarella is produced to orders. Production of mozzarella for August 2009 was more than 5% more than August 2008. Information Resources, Inc (IRI) supermarket data (excepting Wal*Mart) shows sales of mozzarella June – August 2009 was up 8.4% from the same period in 2008.
