Cheese for People Award 2017
"Salva Cremasco selezione Bella Lodi" cheese was placed first in its class after winning the highest number of votes from consumers during the Week&Food, the "fuori salone" event of TUTTOFOOD 2017 as part of Milano Food City, the new week dedicated to food in the city of Milan. This major award was created to discover Italians' favourite cheese by means of a "blind" tasting programme, to find out which flavours participants liked best without any influence from brands and fashions. The underlying aim is to promote Italy's traditional cheeses by encouraging consumers themselves to engage with the assessment and voting process.
