Americans expected to buy 25M lbs. of cheese for Super Bowl LVI
Americans are expected to purchase 25 million pounds of cheese for the Big Game on February 13, according to data from Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin. That's enough to fill the field at SoFi Stadium 25 times with award-winning wheels of specialty Wisconsin Cheese.
“It’s one of the biggest days of the year for football fans,” says LeRoy Butler, former Green Bay Packers Safety and nominee for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2022, “and the best way to celebrate is with Wisconsin Cheese, where they’ve won more awards than anywhere else in the world.”
Wisconsin is home to half of the nation’s specialty cheese, with many crafted by Master Cheesemakers who go through over 10 years of rigorous training. Wisconsin's 1,200 licensed cheesemakers craft over 600 diverse types, styles and varieties of cheese to fulfill America’s ever-growing appetite for cheese. If you’re looking to please the crowd on game day, look for the Proudly Wisconsin Cheese® badge at your local retailer.
