Coon Cheese to change ‘racist’ name

National Nine News

Australia’s iconic dairy brand, Coon Cheese, will be renamed amid claims it’s racist.

The change comes after complaints from Indigenous Australians.

In a statement, the company says it wants to eliminate racism in all its forms and has confirmed it’s now working to develop a new name, “aligning with current attitudes and perspectives”.

The cheese was named after its American creator Edward William Coon.
