Why is ricotta cheese so expensive?

As a cheese lover, I've often wondered why ricotta cheese is so expensive. After some research, I found out that it's mainly due to its production process, which requires a large amount of milk to produce a small quantity of cheese. Additionally, the short shelf life of ricotta means it must be consumed quickly, increasing its overall cost. Another factor is the demand for high-quality, traditional ricotta made using artisan methods, which can drive up the price. Lastly, in some countries, import fees and taxes contribute to the high cost of this delicious cheese.
