The QUALITY of the mountain
Strict dairy regulations enforce the excellent production of the Trentingrana cheese and its specificity was acknowledged by Presidential Decree 3181-26/01/87.
Updated specifications are in force and they regulate in detail the production of milk and cheese, with a special focus on cattle breeding and animals' nutrition. It is absolutely forbidden to use and to possess any ensilaged feed. Furthermore, since 2002 only "NOT GMO" feed can be used and they have to be supplied exclusively by companies selected and certified by the Consortium.
A further acknowledgement for the rigorous maintenance of quality was obtained in 2001. The ISO 9001 certification, released by CSQA, an Italian Certification Institute, was issued for every operating sector of the Consortium: production, ripening, packaging and sale.
