The Warranty

 Quality is point of strength of Parmigiano-Reggiano and that’s just why each whole cheese is characterised by a series of warranty markings and marks to which it should be paid attention before the purchase. First of all the inscription in dots engraved indelibly on the whole circumference of the whole cheese is a warranty of the certain origin and identification of the product; this marking is visible also if a small piece of cheese (punta) is bought. Moreover, on each whole cheese meeting the necessary quality requirements an oval marking is branded bearing the wording "Parmigiano Reggiano Consorzio Tutela". On each whole cheese, in special squares below the oval marking, the year and month of production are branded indelibly: Parmigiano-Reggiano is therefore a thousandthed cheese indicating its ageing period. Above the oval marking there’s the serial number that allows, thanks to a book of reference prepared by the Consorzio del Parmigiano-Reggiano to identify the producing dairy.
