Stringent labelling policies and regulations act as the major challenge for the market

The US Government has stringent policies for the labeling of packages containing cheese products. While packaging cheese products, the label must contain the accurate process through which the cheese has been processed and manufactured, such as ‘pasteurized’, ‘processed’, or ‘blended’. It is also necessary that any cheese made from vegetables/ fruits/ meat should be labeled by these items. The regulation states that there should also be a standard font size on the labels, making it easily readable to the consumers. Adhering to various labeling regulations may increase the cost of packaging and labeling, which, in turn, affects the price of the final products. This can lead to low acceptance by consumers, which poses as a challenge for the cheese powder market.
