Saliceto Production Chain

The path to quality Parmigiano-Reggiano

Our Parmigiano-Reggiano DOP is the result of our unique short production chain, combining the activities of a dairy farm with the cheese manufacturing process, allowing us to oversee every step for total quality control. Let's go on an adventure together!

The Landscape

We are all part of the land. And not just any land: the verdant mountain valleys of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, which have been a UNESCO MAB reserve since 2015. We rely on this rich and healthy soil to grow the hay we feed to our cows, because special cheese calls for special treatment.
Since the land is so important to us, we respect it by properly disposing of all waste and using antipollution methods.

The Cows

Based on organic hay and linseed samples is not the only thing with which we pamper our cows: we provide them with cutting-edge structures, always clean and spacious with adjoining pasture , to guarantee maximum well-being and movement. Special diet, respect for nature and all the comfort that technology can offer. Thanks to this mix, we ensure the health of each animal and prevent paratuberculosis , one of the main causes of Crohn's disease. In short, we make our cows feel good to make you feel good too! But beware! Our company and our products are LULL certified
(we are the first in Italy), a certification that attests to animal welfare and the absence of antibiotics throughout the lactation phase. If you want to know more, you can visit this page.

The Milk

Animal welfare plays a vital role in product quality: thanks to their linseed-based diet, the milk produced by our cows is rich in Omega 3 and contains no harmful elements, such as aflatoxins. Produced using natural methods, without the use of additives, our cheese offers a unique combination of vitamins, proteins, calcium and minerals, in addition to maximum taste.

The Production Process

When a dairy farm meets a cheese manufacturer, quality is guaranteed.
Because we use the milk we produce just a few kilometres from the cheese factory, we can guarantee the highest quality and oversee every step of the production process: in addition to respecting all the DOP production rules, our moulds are left in the tanks for less time, reducing the amount of sodium and eliminating lactose.


As explained above, the Saliceto Production Chain follows a philosophy of respecting the land. We have therefore embraced a circular economy and an eco-sustainable model.
Under this system, we work to recover waste and pollutants such as leftover whey and use them as food for our pigs.
