Buffalo milk

Made from organic milk from water buffalo, this ‘Mozzarella di Bufala Campana’ or Buffalo Mozzarella has a silky, soft texture and a tastier, creamier flavour than normal cow’s milk mozzarella.

Mozzarella di Bufala Campana is an easily digested cheese with a limited lactose and cholesterol content. It is also an excellent source of protein with a high biological value, accompanied by a moderate amount of fats. Furthermore, the cheese also provides high amounts of Calcium and Phosphorus, of water-soluble vitamins such as B1, B2, B6 and Niacin. Finally, it is also a good source of vitamin E and Zinc, both substances that contribute to fighting the negative actions of free radicals. The low level of sodium present makes it preferable to cow's milk mozzarella and other types of cheeses that are notoriously rich in this mineral.

The expression "mozzarella" comes from the verb "mozzare" (to cut off) or, in other words, the operation that is still performed in all dairies where the cheese is manually handled with a characteristic movement and pieces of stringy curd are then detached with index fingers and thumbs to form the individual mozzarellas in their most typical, round form, each of which is about the size of a small fist.

Our mozzarella is 'Bufala Campana DOP' meaning that it has been produced in a designated area of Southern Italy, in this case the Province of Caserta in Campania, recognised around the world as one of the best places in Italy for the production of Buffalo Mozzarella.

The Bufala Campana/DOP mark

The Consorzio di Tutela della Mozzarella di Bufala Campana, created in 1981, is the only organisation acknowledged by the Department for Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies for the protection, safeguarding, improvement and promotion of this extraordinary cheese from Central and Southern Italy that is loved throughout the world.

Mozzarella di Bufala Campana was awarded the prestigious European Denomination of Origin status in 1966. This award is made in order to officially recognise the organoleptic and merchandise qualities of this cheese and mainly depends on the environmental conditions and the traditional working methods existing in the specific area of production.
Mozzarella di Bufala Campana represents the most important Dop brand in central-southern Italy and is the fourth at national levels and the third amongst the Italian Dop cheeses.
