Fake Cheese?

Today’s Globe brings us this story about fake Emmentaler best known  as Swiss cheese. I’ll wait while you go back and read that again. Fake cheese. Earlier this year we brought a story about black market honey, and now fake cheese?

Is nothing sacred. It makes me doubt the provenience of this Panerai I’m sporting from Hong Kong.

How much profit motive could be involved with producing fake Swiss cheese, in Switzerland? The whole story is baffling.

It reminds me of stories from Asia about fake egg production, if it’s done in a grimy Beijing apartment it’s a crime, if it’s done by Ferran Adria it’s art and creativity of the highest order. Crazy world we live in.
