Italy is the fifth largest producer of sheep’s milk cheese in the world and Sardinia, in particular, is the leading region in Italy for the production of sheep’s milk and its transformation into products with Protected Designation of Origin.
Interpreting this role as a responsibility, it was decided to promote the first edition of OVINUS, the international sheep’s milk cheese competition.
The competition, scheduled for May 2021 and reserved for different categories of cheese made exclusively from sheep’s milk, will be a unique opportunity for operators to exchange views, stimulate quality growth and diversification of production, increase knowledge and promote the consumption of cheese at regional, national and international level.
Within the EU – alongside Italy – the largest producers of sheep’s milk cheese are Greece, Spain, Portugal and France.
