History

  • Parmesan is the English term for Parmigiano-Reggiano, which originates from Italy and has a protected designation of origin.  Today, Parmesan Cheese is used as the name which imitates Parmigiano-Reggiano and when used alone, avoids many legal constraints, therefore allowing it to be produced all over the world and it's not protected by a designation of origin. 
  • South American countries have become some of the leading Parmesan Cheese manufactuers in the world.
