N.B.:

Such cheeses are classified by ISTAT through the customs code 04069069: Cheeses with content, in weight, of fat ≤ 40%, with content, in weight, of water of the substance (not fat) ≤ 47%.

The similarity between this customs code and the one identifying Parmigiano-Reggiano and Grana Padano (04069061) as well as the perfectly identical technical descriptions, contribute to generate ambiguity between two products characterized by different origin and quality.

The graphs here below, representing Italian import of "Grana-like cheeses", reveal a significant trend.
The EU enlargement has in fact produced a change within the supplier countries: import from Countries such as France or Germany has clearly fallen, whereas the role of New Member States from East Europe has become more relevant.
