gourm.it is partner of the LIFE DOP project

Developed with the assistance of the European Union, the Life DOP project involves Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano in the realization of a circular economy model with low environmental impact.

Subject of Dop Life research is the production chain of two of the largest Italian dop, Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano.


Objective: To demonstrate that the synchronicity between sustainability and technological progress is not only possible but necessary.


Background of the project is the territory of Mantua.

Mantova is the only Italian province that houses the production areas of both Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano.

Moreover, given its social and morphological specificity, has a intensive and industrial production.


The partners are scattered at every point in the chain of production of Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano. Therefore are directly involved in the realization of the project farmers, ranchers, dairies, organizations that deal with technology and development, sales offices, research departments.

Among these also appears Gourm.it, with responsibility for the communication and dissemination actions.


What do we hope to achieve?

The project began in September 2016 and will come to an end in 2021.

At the end of this long path we want to obtain a model in good practices of circular economy.

This model, measured live on the Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano production chain, will be certified.

“In times when it seems that the vast domain industry around the world – said to regard Piero Sardo, president of the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity – in some countries, including Italy in particular, there are small quality productions, excellence linked to the territory, operated by extraordinary characters “. “Parmigiano Reggiano – explains Sardo – live a little ‘this contradiction, because it is often seen as a single reality, and instead is a collection, an extraordinary network of small producers”.


“The differences between them – the president of the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity – are not huge because they must all adhere to a very strict discipline, but there are differences, there are men and different stories and there are also different techniques. so the invitation is really to bring these producers, to know them, to understand the differences and then eventually to also evaluate the sensory taste of various Parmigiano Reggiano, but the really important thing is to take this path, this path of narration, of stories. “
