Under EU regulations, for our product to be awarded the PDO designation, the pasteurised whole milk we use to make our gorgonzola must come only from the area under the Consortium’s control.
As part of our drive to raise our international profile, we have made sure that Si Invernizzi has been granted all the certifications necessary to comply with food safety standards and we have implemented a highly effective control system to guard against any possible risk factor.
In Italy we are ISO 14001, 22000 certified, in France and Germany we are IFS certified and in the United Kingdom we are BRC certified.
To respond to the growing demand for ever higher quality and efficiency standards, we at Si Invernizzi have installed state-of-the-art systems for maintaining hygiene on our premises, before, during and after each production process.
Every step in the life of our cheese takes place on our premises and each step is kept under strict control by our highly skilled specialist staff who make constant checks on such factors as temperature, humidity and the air-conditioning within our facilities, monitoring these using the most sophisticated, custom-built control systems.
What’s more, we at Si Invernizzi are proud to be one of the few remaining local companies that actually heat-treats the milk in-house.
This winning combination of cleverly integrated technology and production skills, backed by our thirty years of experience, our attention to detail and utmost respect for tradition, makes Si Invernizzi PDO. gorgonzola an outstanding symbol of excellence, not only for Novara, but for all that is best about the Made in Italy brand.
