Ferrarini Parmigiano Reggiano DOP cheese wedge is aged for 18 months to impart the nutty, layered flavor that makes real Italian Parmigiano Reggiano so delicious.
Ferrarini monitors the entire production chain of their Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, including using non-GMO milk from their own cows. This is in keeping with the purity of ingredients and production methods established by the Consortium that ensures the cheese is being made to the exact standards required in order to be considered authentic Italian Parmigiano Reggiano, and worthy of the DOP certification. DOP stands for Denominazione d' Origine Protetta, or Protected Designation of Origin.
In 1956, Lauro Ferrarini started producing Parmigiano Reggiano cheese along with prosciutto and other meats in the Reggio Emilia region of Italy. Since thenLauro Ferrarini has been innovating to bring old-world techniques and methods for artisan-crafted Italian cheeses and cured meats to consumers worldwide, without losing sight of quality and tradition.
