Artisan cheeses in Missouri : consumer buying habits and preferences
To determine Missouri consumers' artisan cheese consumption patterns, a survey was completed in 2013 by the University of Missouri Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics. The survey collected responses from 1,079 Missouri residents. Of the respondents, 54.4 percent were female and 45.6 percent were male, almost 60 percent were between the ages of 35 and 64, and 93 percent were white. Based on the results of the survey, this publication identifies Missouri consumers' artisan cheese purchasing and consumption patterns to help cheese makers with important marketing and production decisions.
