A conflict with the European Union could soon make European cheese a lot more expensive, and the cheese world is very nervous

European cheese might soon cost twice as much in America. Here’s everything you need to know.

Kind of. The U.S. has sought to fire back at the E.U. for the perceived slight. In May, the World Trade Organization, acting acting as mediator in the economic temper tantrum, ruled that subsidies received by Airbus were indeed illegal, clearing the way for the U.S. government to retaliate in order to recoup losses. Puzzlingly, the parties involved seem to think the best way to do that would be to make American consumers essentially pay double for a wedge of Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Honestly, I can’t even remember the last time I ate fondue. This sounds like a First World problem to me. Can’t I just eat Velveeta until this blows over? It’s so melty!

In the short term, American artisanal producers could see a boost, but the infrastructure and production capacity in the U.S. is vastly different than it is in Europe. Pound for pound, American cheese is just more expensive. Erika Kubick, an all-around cheese advocate who runs the popular Instagram account CheeseSexDeath, points out that “a lot of these European cheeses are some of the most affordable for the quality.” She adds that the comparatively lower-priced imports “are the gateway to more expensive artisan, American cheeses.”

What’s the big deal if people just eat a little less cheese for a while?
