"Cheese is one of the agrifood products that most characterize and are most firmly rooted in the place they belong to, the result of centuries-old traditions and unique production chains. If this is true of cheese in general, it is true in particular of that of the Bergamo area. More specifically, Bergamo holds the European record for PDO cheeses – nine, to be precise – and boasts many others of great quality, such as the “Formaggi Principi delle Orobie” (FPO),the Prime Cheeses of the Orobie Alps."
