In two February 9 US patents, 6183805: 'Continuous manufacture of process cheese' and 6183804: 'Continuous on-demand manufacture of process cheese,' technology can be seen to be working hand in hand with marketing. One patent deals with making cheese without using enzymes, cultures or microorganisms, clearly targeted at vegetarian and health conscious consumers. The other, if successful, will structurally change this industry: cheesemaking in two steps which can be done after a timelag, and at separate locations.
