Italian Parmigiano Reggiano Exports Up 13.2% In 2015

Exports of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese rose by 13.2 per cent last year, the biggest rise in a decade, according to Italy’s Parmigiano Reggiano consortium.

The share of product destined for international markets grew to account for 35 per cent of the total and stood at 46,700 tonnes.

Exports to the US grew by 34 per cent, making it the second biggest foreign market for the sector after France.

Double digit growth was also recorded in The Netherlands (20 per cent), Spain (18 per cent), and Greece (15 per cent).

The consortium said the growth had been achieved despite the continuing problem of foreign imitations of the famous Italian cheese.
