China dairy bid by South West producers

Dairy producers from the South West of England have travelled to China in a bid to secure a larger share of the world's grocery market.

Many producers claim dairy food such as cheese and chocolate is becoming more popular in the country.

Mary Quicke, from Quickes Cheese, based at Newton St Cyres, near Exeter, said: "If you're young, cool and happening in China one of the ways you know that is by eating cheese, because your parents don't."

Cheese exporter, Steven Waldron, said he expected the industry to grow in the next few years.
