What makes Parmigiano Reggiano special is the all important human factor. This cheese owes its unique qualities to the co-operation between the milk producer (the milk is used straight from the cows – fresh and without additives or treatment of any kind) and the cheese maker, who transforms the milk into the cheese and looks after the maturing process. The transformation of milk into Parmigiano Reggiano depends on the skill of the cheese maker.
