The rural town of Ladismith in the Western Cape province of South Africa has been churning out a variety of cheese products since 1940? It is also the home of the Ladismith Cheese Company, which produces high-quality dairy products, including quality cheese, butter and milk powder products.
According to its website, the Company started operations with milk intake of 15000 litres per day and initially only produced Gouda and cheddar cheese before expanding its product offering to include specialty cheese, such as Edam, Ladismither, Mature Cheddar, White Cheddar, White Gouda and Mozzarella. It also, subsequently, diversified its business within the dairy industry to include butter, which the company began producing in 2002, and, on completion of the first powder plant in 2004, milk powder, buttermilk powder, whey powder and coffee creamers.
The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health lists dairy products like cheese and milk as a healthy source of protein, in addition to fish and other products (https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/healthy-eating-plate/).
