Stilton exported to China

No, not the result of Lord Bonkers' latest trade mission but a true story from the Leicester Mercury:
Matthew O'Callaghan, chairman of Melton Mowbray Food Partnership, said the deal was significant in two ways.

He said: "First, it shows stilton is becoming much more popular abroad and, second, it shows how the Chinese economy is expanding.

"It is certainly the case that the Chinese are acquiring western tastes. Maybe Melton Mowbray pork pies will be next."
