History

  • Grana Padano is an Italian cheese with a protected designation of origin.  This means the cheese is guaranteed for its destinctive features and its link with the area of origin, by a system EU rules designed to protect both consumers and producers. 

  • The "Consorzio di tutela del Grana Padano" (Grana Padano Protection Consortium) promotes the discovery of the flavors and aromas of the most widely-sold and widely-consumed PDO cheese in the world. 

  • The term "GRANA" first came into use to indicate a cheese with a grainy structure, produced in teh Po Valley from the eleventh century onwards.  As the repuation grew, several varieties of GRANA were established, all grouped under the term "PADANO".
