Provolone Valpadana PDO, 2 Tricks To Recognize The Real One

A good quarter of the total (24.5%) in the cheese category of Italian products are those most imitated in Australia. The Italian Sounding theme is very dear to the Consorzio Tutela Provolone Valpadana, that suggests two simple tricks to make no more mistakes in being sure to choose the authentic product. The first is the PDO brand: – Protected Designation of Origin: it is a red rosette, with a yellow outline and again a red crown on the outside, containing the words Protected Designation of Origin.

The second one is the Rosetta:  this round ‘rosette’ depicting a provolone on a green background, is the logo that must be affixed to all packets on sale, to guarantee the quality of the product and to avoid any form of counterfeiting.
