Grana Padano

Grana Padano cheese has been a part of Italy's proud gastronomic heritage for nearly 1000 years. A staple in Italian cuisine, it has become the world's best-selling PDO cheese. It has a fine grainy structure and a mellow, tasty, yet never overpowering, flavor, and can be found aged between 9 months to over 24 months. Grana Padano possesses unique nutritional features and is naturally lactose free due to its production characteristics and the long ageing process.
