The panel of international experts at the Cheese Awards in Nantwich has awarded the gold medal in the Best Italian Hard Cheese category to Ferrari's Grana Padano Riserva.
In addition to the gold medal for Best Italian Hard Cheese, Ferrari also won 2 silver medals: the first in the Best Organic Cheese - Non-UK Producers category for the Parmigiano Reggiano made from organic milk, and the second in the Grated Hard Cheese category for the GranSfoglia.
"This has been a great year for awards for our products", declared Laura Ferrari, CEO of Ferrari Giovanni S.p.a. "The gold medal awarded at Nantwich to Ferrari's Grana Padano Riserva followed recognition received from Stiftung Warentest, the German consumer guide, which judged our Grana Padano Riserva the best packaged Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano cheese distributed in Germany. In addition, the latest Swiss Emmentaler Consortium Assembly of Delegates awarded GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE to the factory producing the cheese distributed by Ferrari Formaggi! It is amazing to see experts and consumers rewarding mine and my colleagues' work. Every day, as passionately as ever, we strive to remain faithful to our fundamental tenets of goodness, quality, reliability and transparency."
