Parmigiano makers get relief from sales of damaged wheels


(ANSA) – Reggio Emilia, October 16 – One million euros has
been raised in support of parmigiano-reggiano cheese
manufacturers crippled by recent earthquakes in the northern
Emilia Romagna region, the local parmigiano-reggiano consortium
said on Tuesday.
The takings - the result of ethical purchasing initiatives
and discount sales of damaged cheese forms - will help mitigate
the over 100 million euros in damage suffered by the sector as a
result of the quakes in the region on 20 and 29 May, which
toppled roughly 600,000 wheels of ageing parmigiano, damaged 37
dairies and 600 farms in the provinces of Modena, Reggio
Emilia, Mantova and Bologna.
The damaged cheese wheels underwent careful inspection
before being put on the market and 15,000 were discarded as
waste, the consortium said.
Dairies in the production area have raised a further 9
million euros in special donations.
