Parmigiano Reggiano is the King of Italian cheese, produced since the 1200. Parmigiano Reggiano is part of the history, tradition and hard work of the people who create it. What makes Parmigiano Reggiano special is the all important human factor. This cheese owes its unique qualities to the co-operation between the milk producer (the milk is used straight from the cows – fresh and without additives or treatment of any kind) and the cheese maker, who transforms the milk into the cheese and looks after the maturing process. The transformation of milk into Parmigiano Reggiano depends on the skill of the cheese maker. This knowledge and these techniques are the result of generations of experience, handed down through the centuries and always produced in the same area. Parmigiano Reggiano is a complete food with remarkable qualities, formed during the long, natural ageing process. Minimum 12 month to be Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese D.O.P.
