HERE BY US, BEING FROM HERE MEANS BEING CERTIFIED DOP
Our roots stem from the province of Mantua, a land that’s always been devoted to the production of the two most famous hard cheeses of the whole world: Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano, both so similar in shape and aging but each with its unique taste derived from their different milk type. We are the only Italian union that’s certified DOP both for Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano, thanks to our presence on both the left and right Po riverbanks, the two production areas protected by the specific disciplinary code that regulates the production of these cheeses.
THE CONTROLLED SUPPLY AND PRODUCTION CHAIN
The whole production chain, which we call “from the shed right onto somebody’s table”, is accurately and rigorously supervised and certified by our associated factories. This is how we can afford to guarantee the reliability of the brand, the perfect quality of the products and the consumer’s safety, and it all depends on the scrupulous raw material selection made every day by the over 1.500 breeders who provide us with the best Italian milk of the DOP areas. That’s because our associated cheese factories’ primary objective is, first and foremost, to check and certify the origin, the quality and the freshness of that precious raw material – milk – that represents the very basis of all our products, and also to make sure that each and every phase of the production process goes on in accordance to the highest hygienical and sanitary standards established by European regulations. The closeness between breeders and factories makes our production chain very short, entirely located in the same territory – Mantua’s countryside – right until our products are traded.
