The territory and the area of origin2019-03-22T14:47:06+00:00

The PDO mark has allowed us to render famous the original product and its territory.

The word ‘mozzarella’ is considered a generic term (like pizza, pasta, etc.) by international food law, used all over the world for products without any link with the historical, cultural and artisan traditions.

The PDO brand has allowed us to make the original product and its unmistakable taste well-known, but above all it has allowed the consumer to distinguish non-certified mozzarella from the original. The Mozzarella di Bufala Campana undergoes many controls, from the breeding of the buffalo to the sale to end user.

The buffalo is a long-lived and strong animal that does not fear the heat.

The buffalo is a long-lived and strong animal that does not fear the heat.

“The buffaloes go swimming where the water is high and walking where it is low so that the fluvial grasses and the algae are completely eradicated by tightly wrapping around their limbs (…) 24-30 hours after the passage of the buffalo in the canals the water level lowers and the rivers do not overflow.”
