The Protected Designation of Origin is an official mark of quality quality issued only by the government. PDO guarantees consumers that all stages of production take place in a specific geographical area that can not be relocated, from the milk collection to cheese ripening.
The PDO logo is the single marker for 44 cheeses, 2 butters and 1 cream, all united by the same values:
• Guarantee of origin in all the manufacturing steps (milk production, processing and maturing). This is the first guarantee provided by the PDO.
• Preservation of expertise. Because anyone cannot make PDO products any old how, all the steps of obtaining a PDO are strictly defined in a specification thoroughly controlled by an independent certification body.
