Gorgonzola: Prices and Production

On this page, you will find:
  • a graph that shows the average monthly prices of the veined Italian blue cheese matured Gorgonzola Sweet (“dolce”) and Spicy (“piccante”), quoted weekly at the Metropolitana Milano MonzaBrianza Lodi Chamber of Commerce;
  • a chart representing the evolution, month by month, of Gorgonzola’s production;
  • two tables recording the average monthly wholesale prices;
  • a table with the time series of Gorgonzola’s production (n° of wheels);
  • an area chart that displays the monthly evolution of Gorgonzola’s production.

The Gorgonzola’s price lines could be explained by the following :
  • The final negotiations/signed contracts over the farm gate milk price in Lombardy and the price on spot imported milk could affect the trend price of Gorgonzola
  • the seasonal demand (stronger in winter) and the cheese conservation;
  • export volumes;
  • the new entry on the domestic and international markets of counterfeits or similar products at low prices.
