The Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) is the best guarantee of excellence of a European agro-food product. Every Pecorino Toscano PDO cheese wheel is monitored from the time it’s made and meets to 100% of the production regulations. The brand name must be applied in ink on the soft cheese and hot on aged cheese. On prepackaged portions, marking is carried out on each individual package, provided that this step takes place in the area of origin. The Pecorino Toscano PDO cheese wheel must bear the label approved by the Consortium, origin marking including the identification number of the dairy farm which produces Pecorino Toscano PDO and the mark as a guarantee of compliance with the Procedural Guidelines.
