In our factory located in Varana di Serramazzoni, in the mountains near Modena, we make a special type of organic Parmigiano Reggiano. Here, every day 22 wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano di Montagna (Mountain Parmigiano Reggiano) are produced. 12 of these wheels are also entitled to be branded Parmigiano Reggiano Biologico (organic type).
Parmigiano Reggiano Biologico (organic type) complies with strict regulations issued by “Consorzio del Parmigiano Reggiano”, meant to preserve traditions, quality and meet requirements relating to GMO-free nutrition of dairy cows and their wellbeing.
On a national level, the region of Emilia Romagna is a leading player in organic farming.
In our site located in Varana di Serramazzoni, in the mountains near Modena, milk used for organic type Parmigiano Reggiano is separately processed, from collection, to vats where evening milk is skimmed, across the whole process into cheese, to brine vats until it is finally stored and aged in our warehouse, on shelves reserved to wheels of organic Parmigiano Reggiano.
4 Madonne Caseificio dell’Emilia offers two different ages of Parmigiano Reggiano Biologico (organic type): 18 and 24 months old.
Organoleptic traits of organic Parmigiano Reggiano are almost the same of traditional Parmigiano Reggiano, but feature added values due to organic farming.
4 Madonne Caseificio dell’Emilia’s Parmigiano Reggiano is on sale, together with other made in Italy food and wine products, in our groceries. You can also comfortably shop them on-line.
