Chapter 90:21
Non-Melacha Prohibitions

21. It is permissible for a Jew to supervise, on Shabbos, a Gentile milking cows and making cheese from milk owned by the Gentile; this is true, even though the Gentile is [making the cheese] with intent to sell it to the Jew, and the Jew is [supervising] so that the cheese will be permissible for a Jew, and thus he will be able to purchase it after Shabbos; the reason that this is permitted, is because the cheese is still owned by the Gentile, and he is making it for his own benefit (1).

It is even permissible for a Jew to tell him to make the cheese on Shabbos, since it is permissible to tell a Gentile: "Perform your work," even though ultimately a Jew will benefit from it.
