Switzerland-based cheese maker Emmi hopes to push itself further into the US with the acquisition of Roth Käse, reflecting a wider international focus for its products.

In acquiring Roth Käse, in which the company had already held a minority stake, Emmi says it will continue to focus on expansion in a number of key global markets including the US, Germany and Italy.

The group did not disclose how much it would pay to complete the purchase.
