The people and their art
Parmigiano Reggiano is part of the history, tradition and hard work of the people who create it.
Essentially it depends on the knowledge of everyone involved in making it.
PRODUCED SINCE 1200
Parmigiano Reggiano was first made several hundred years ago at the Benedictine monasteries in the area between the Po River and the Apennine
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 and the cheese maker, who transforms the milk into the cheese and looks after the maturing process.
