It's one of the pleasures of life - a fine bottle of red wine and some tasty Danish cheese. And it seems the Spanish agree wholeheartedly. At the annual wine festival in Valdepeñas - where Denmark was guest of honour because of the local wine's popularity in Denmark - MD Foods' cheese played a prominent role. MD Foods' Spanish subsidiary arranged a special cheese table with a selection of MD cheese matching the Spanish wines.

"Cheese and wine is an ideal combination - and a good example of increasing trade links between Spain and Denmark," says Jette W. Petersen, Director, MD Foods, Spain.
Danish cheese is currently experiencing a boom in Spain. Over the past three years, MD sales have grown between 15 and 20 per cent annually, spearheaded by mozzarella, havarti and danablu.
