Caciocavallo, which means "cheese on horseback", gets its name from the manner in which the cheese is always tied together in a rope and dangled over a wooden board to drain and age. An Italian type of pasta filata cheese made out of sheep's or cow's milk, it is produced throughout Southern Italy and the Balkans.

The history of Caciocavallo goes back to 500 BC when Hippocrates first mentioned the cleverness of the Greeks in making it. Caciocavallo is a semi-hard cheese made of a spun paste produced with cow's milk. Its rind is thin, smooth, yellow. Depending on the seasoning, its aromatic characteristics can vary from sweet to spicy.

About Latteria Soresina

Latteria Soresina was founded in 1900 as a cooperative for processing the milk produced by its members and in response to the pressing need to forge a solid union between farmers and milk producers. This inseparable bond has led to the company becoming one of the main players in the processing and sale of this product.

Currently, there are around 200 members represented by the farms producing the milk processed by Latteria Soresina. The cooperative model represented and still represents the most suitable form for transforming this intent into practice. Indeed, mutuality between the members is strong—the cooperative takes care of any issues that could affect the individual farm.

Today, Latteria Soresina is the world’s first producer of the famous Grana Padano and holds pole positions for other Italian excellences, such as butter and Provolone cheese, having long been established as a prestigious brand within its sector. This is a guarantee for all those who choose us.
