Parmigiano Reggiano PDO is a mature, nutritious cheese with a rich, fruity flavor and a flaky, slightly grainy texture. Essential for many Italian dishes, it is still hand-made without any additives, just as it was nine centuries ago. Parmigiano Reggiano’s origins date back to the 12th century and since that time, artisan makers have stayed faithful to the identity and unique natural production of this iconic cheese. Today, there are 380 small artisan dairies in Italy which craft Parmigiano Reggiano cheese with the same dedication as always. The PDO mark ensures that the name Parmigiano Reggiano can be applied only to cheese produced in the area of origin (provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Mantua on the right bank of the river Po and Bologna on the left side of the river Reno). It also means that it must be made using special artisan methods by following a particular set of rules. It is the area, the natural feed, the high quality raw milk with no additives and its long aging process that makes Parmigiano Reggiano cheese unique. Available in random weight cuts and grated bags.
