LOGO UE DOP This page provides the table and related chart of the Italian PDO cheeses production.
You may notice that the list indicates a large number of PDO cheeses .

This is mainly due to the following reasons:
  • The various PDO cheese types have different fine tastes thus allowing the preparation of a large number of regional delicatessen;
  • The PDO cheeses have various regional origins thus giving to each cheese product a specific link with its production area;
  • The ability to put in place various processing techniques (from milk into different types of cheese) always aiming at a high quality level of the cheese product.
