The Slow Food Presidia at Cheese 2015

Cheese – the international eventdedicated to milk in all its shapes and forms to be held in Bra (Italy) from Friday, September 18 to Monday, September 21, 2015 – will see the participation of hundreds of producers from Italy and abroad. The streets of the city center will house, among others, products from over 60 Slow Food Presidia: cheese, animal breeds, bread, cereals, honey and jam.

The Slow Food Presidia are projects that support quality productions at risk of extinction, protect unique regions and ecosystems, recover traditional processing methods, and safeguard native breeds and local plant varieties. At Cheese, the Presidia products will be presented with the narrative label, a system for food labeling packed with information about producers, breeds, production techniques, places of origin and animal welfare.

Slow Food has been working for many years to support those remaining cheesemakers and herders who, with their passion and commitment, are resisting standardization and the homogenization of taste; Cheese offers an opportunity to celebrate and promote them.

At the Cheese Market visitors will be able to discover the extraordinary biodiversity of cheese production from around the world: from Africa and the Balkans via the Pyrenees to the Alps and the pastures of Northern Europe.
