Pizza Sales Increase is Good News For Dairy
In the United States today, we love pizza!
We love it so much that we eat about 3 billion pizzas annually. And an essential pizza ingredient — cheese — gets its start on America's dairy farms.
Served up in slices around the country, about 25 percent of all U.S. cheese ends up on a pizza. That's according to Jimmy Simonte of the pizza-giant, Domino's.
This is encouraging news to the nation's dairy farmers — who have a shared interest in growing demand for the family-favorite meal.
Selling more pizza, means selling more dairy.
