UK: Twineham Grange Farm renames Parmesan, gains listings
Twineham Grange Farm , the UK producer of speciality cheeses, has renamed its Parmesan-style cheese to fall in line with labelling laws enforced at EU level. The laws came into force in June, and decree that cheese can only be described as Parmesan if it comes from the Parmigiano Reggiano region of Italy. (Parmesan is the accepted English translation of the term Parmigiano Reggiano.) Protected under EEC Regulation 2081/92, Parmesan cheese is one of a swathe of products to gain PDO recognition (Protected Designation of Origin). Other high-profile products with PDO status include Prosciutto di Parma (Parma ham) and Stilton cheese.
