Spanish families budget for cheese

TASTY: Cheese still popular.

SPANISH families spent 3.8 per cent of their food budget on cheese last year. The average of €56.34 per person was 0.1 per cent less than in 2011. Consumption fell by 1 per cent to an annual 7.9 kilos, revealed a ministry of Agriculture report.

The Spanish might have eaten slightly less cheese but they spent practically the same amount of money because prices rose to an average of €7 a kilo.

Fresh cheeses, like the popular variety originally from Burgos, were the most popular.  They accounted for 31 per cent of all those bought in 2012 and were also the cheapest.
