Alti Formaggi was created in 2009 by several cheese consortiums from the Lombardy region. It represents the first example of Italian Consortium of Protection working together towards a common goal, in this case to form a united front to launch the new Alti Formaggi brand.
The project aims to bring the consortiums in line with one another and to increase awareness of the high-quality products they represent. Altiformaggi.com is and always will be the focal point of the project. It is a shared space with information, highlights and joint promotions aimed at both consumers and enthusiasts. In order to formalise the project legally, in 2011 the Consorzi di Tutela turned Alti Formaggi into an ‘Associazione’.
This move was to help the group come into active contact with more consumers, not only on-line, but through events, specific initiatives, training and information in schools, promotions and the ability to highlight and endorse PDO and PGI products.
The activities developed and promoted by Alti Formaggi integrate rather than replace the initiatives run by individual members, including those of the Consorzio Tutela Taleggio.
The association Alti Formaggi is ocmposed by:
- Consorzio Tutela Taleggio
- Consorzio Tutela Provolone Valpadana
- Consorzio Tutela Salva Cremasco
- Bonaventi Gianluigi (President)
- Stradiotti Libero
- Taddei Massimo
- Vittorio Emanuele Pisani
Our Joint Projects
One of the main themes which unites both the Consortium Protection Taleggio and the Alti Formaggi Association is food education, culture and running information programmes for future generations.
That’s why one of the consortium’s most important actions in 2011 was to create a Food Education project to educate Italian school children about the culture surrounding Taleggio PDO and other PDO cheeses from the Lombardy region.
The project was aimed in particular at schools outside the region itself. For more information concerning Food Education programmes, please go to AltiFormaggi.com.
