With its distinct smell and alien taste, cheese is the latest western export trying to charm Chinese taste buds.

憑藉其獨特的氣味和外來口味,奶酪是試著用來吸引中國人味蕾的最新西方產物。

As dairy becomes a growing part of Chinese life, cheese is finding a small, but secure place in everyday diets.

由於奶製品越來越成為中國人生活的一部分,奶酪找到它在日常飲食中一個小但穩固的一席之地。

Liu Yang is the owner of a small cheese factory in Beijing where he produces thirteen different kinds of French cheese.

劉揚是北京一家生產 13種不同法國奶酪的小型工廠的經營者。

[劉揚,奶酪廠經營者說]:

"Chinese people already know that cheese is tasty and nutritious. But Chinese people do not understand cheese culture, how to eat cheese and all the different kinds of cheese. After I opened this shop I realized that before I try to sell cheese to Chinese people I should introduce it to them first."

“中國人已經知道奶酪是美味可口又營養。但中國人不明白奶酪的文化,如何吃奶酪和所有不同種類的奶酪。在開店後,我意識到在試著推銷奶酪給中國人之前,我必須先介紹它。

The Chinese dairy industry has grown between 500 and 600 percent since the 1990s.

自90年代起,,中國乳製品產業已成長百分之500至600。

For many like Beijing resident Lu Peng, better living standards, rising incomes and wider availability have turned drinking milk into a daily ritual.

對於許多像北京居民呂鵬來說,更好的生活水平,收入的增加和更多的選擇,已讓喝牛奶成為每天的例行之事。

[Lu Peng, Bank Employee]:

"In the old times it was only the rich people who could drink milk everyday. But now milk has become a part of daily life. Now one can buy milk at any time and anywhere, even have it for breakfast every morning. So more and more people like drinking milk."

[呂鵬,銀行職員說]:

“在以前只有有錢的人可以每天喝牛奶,但現在牛奶已經成為日常生活的一部分。現在人可以在任何時間和任何地點買牛奶,甚至把它當作每天的早餐。所以越來越多人喜歡喝牛奶。

The demand for milk has increased sevenfold in urban areas, with the number of dairy farms in China rising to 1.77 million.

在城市地區,對牛奶的需求已增加7倍,奶品農場的數量在中國上已升到177萬。

With milk finding its way into Chinese hearts - and stomachs - it may only be a matter of time before cheese enjoys similar success.

就像牛奶找到進入中國人的心及胃的方式,奶酪能享有類似的成功只是早晚的事。
