The Supply Chain

Organic Parmigiano Reggiano with a Short Supply Chain:

Healthier, tastier, more convenient.

Nowadays we often hear about sustainability, organic farming and natural short supply chain production. But what is meant by “short supply chain” or “zero km supply chain” for organic Parmigiano Reggiano DOP? And what are the advantages for the environment and the consumer? Let’s start from the beginning: the supply chain is the set of actions that make up the entire production process, from the birth of the product to its delivery to the consumer’s table. This journey includes all stages of processing: the raw material, processing, production and finally distribution on the market.

What Is a Short Supply Chain?

A short supply chain is characterised by a limited number of steps from producer to consumer. This ensures that the consumer buys and enjoys a fresher, as well as more convenient product. Indeed, direct sale without intermediaries lowers costs and increases the purchasing power of consumers. A further added value of the zero km supply chain is the direct relationship between producer and consumer, which encourages the sharing of knowledge and, consequently, a more responsible and conscious consumption. In addition to local points of sale, this type of supply chain also reaches consumers through online sales managed internally by farms, or through sales to solidarity purchasing groups (GAS) or beehives.

The Bio Reggiani Zero Km Dairy Chain

Simplicity and transparency are at the heart of the BIO Reggiani dairy’s cheese production. Creating the best cheese in the world is a great responsibility. That’s why we put all the best that nature and man’s work can offer.


Organic Fodder for Our Cows

Our zero km supply chain starts with the organic cultivation of fodder in our fields. Each plant grows and matures according to the strict regulations of organic farming, without the use of pesticides. This guarantees genuine milk, rich in nutrients and flavour. In addition, quality hay is essential to obtain the microbiological flora necessary for processing raw milk, which allows Parmigiano Reggiano DOP to mature properly.


Happy Cows for Perfect Milk

We take personal care of our animals, rearing them without the use of antibiotics, medicines and industrial feed. Even the disinfestation of flies and parasites takes place naturally, with only the use of micro-vaporised water instead of chemicals or insecticides. The well-being of our cows is the secret to producing better milk. That is why we house them in large, open barns to avoid stressful conditions, and we are one of the few remaining dairies to use bulls for reproduction, instead of artificial insemination.


Artisanal Production

The balance between ancient rituals and modern technology guides the production of our cheese. Milking takes place twice a day, as per regulations: before dawn and in the evening. Only 10 metres separate the milking parlours from the Master Cheesemaker who, together with the production staff, starts the magic of organic Parmigiano Reggiano DOP. Once the wheels are created, the Parmigiano rests on the long wooden shelves in the large maturing room. Starting at 12 months, the wheels can reach various degrees of ageing: 18, 24, 36, 40, 48, 60, 72 months. The maximum ageing period is up to 100 months.


Direct Sale

The journey of our organic Parmigiano Reggiano DOP ends where it started. The farm shop, in fact, is located at our production site, right next to the stables and fodder fields. We run it in person, as well as the online shop, because we love telling you about our products, answering your questions and conveying a bit of us in every email, phone call or chat that arises in front of the counter in our shop. This is the short supply chain of the Caseificio BIO Reggiani.
