Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, known as ‘Parmesan’, is one of the world’s oldest and richest cheeses - still produced today as it was nine centuries ago. Totally natural - it’s the only cheese that has such an extensive maturation which improves the nutrition, aroma and taste. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) product.

The minimum maturation time for Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is 12 months, but only when it reaches approximately 24 months of age, is it at its best.

The history of this King of Cheeses dates back to at least 1200AD and today, Parmigiano Reggiano is still handmade by small artisan dairies with the same care and dedication that was shown 800 years ago.
