Alma Caseus 2014: and the winner is…

We’d like to congratulate all Gourm.it associates that won at Alma Caseus 2014.

Caseus is the National contest dedicated to the world of cheese, a competition conceived to add value to this great patrimony of Italian gastronomy through the relevant products and professionals.

All the winners here

What’s Alma Caseus? Following the same pattern of International cheese-related contests, ALMA Caseus is the most detailed and complete one in Italy, as far as technical and professional skills are concerned. Cheese cutting and serving, origin, communication, quality and culture of product are equally important and taken into account in the contest. The third edition took place in collaboration with “Fiere di Parma” at CIBUS, the 17th International Food Salon (Parma, May 5th to 8th 2014).

Agripiace, a new associate for Gourm.it

We are very glad to announce that a new producer has entered the big Gourm.it family: Agripiace!


Agripiace is a cooperative where many little organic farms from Piacenza come together.

Agripiace is in Bettola, near Emilian Appennino. Their land is unique, because its microclimate is affected by many factors: 70 kms from Tyrrhenian Sea, altitude is about 800 mts high, and below there’s Po Valley and its reservoir.

The race of bovine breed in this area guarantee fine cuts of meat and high-quality milk. Animals are raised in pastures, and than put into stables and fed using only organic feeding, based on hay and cereals.

Their masterpiece is an organic Grana Padano made without lysozyme. Lysozyme is a natural preservative, usually added to standard Grana Padano; this special kind of Grana Padano doesn’t need it thanks to cow’s very special feeding. Also, their high quality milk carries on all the scents and the perfumes from the mountains herbs contained into the hay.
