4 Madonne dell'Emilia Dairy: our history
Our history starts long ago...
Our cheese factory was built back in 1967 at the will of a group of breeders: right from the outset the structural size of its design made it a futuristic project.
The 4 Madonne dell'Emilia cheese factory takes its name from a shrine in Lesignana close to our current premises, which depicts four Madonnas on its four sides.
In 1996 we obtained UNI EN ISO 9001 quality system certification, and later also the international BRC and IFS certifications.
In 2014 the new factory in Lesignana introduced cutting-edge technologies to its age-old process (the production of Parmigiano Reggiano) to optimise spaces and reduce costs without compromising on the quality of the cheese and maintaining the strictest compliance with the production specification, further enhancing the fundamental human contribution to the processing.
The 4 Madonne Caseificio dell’Emilia cooperative is the only Parmigiano Reggiano factory producing cheese in 4 factories, with 4 production codes: three in the province of Modena (Lesignana di Modena with code 1240, Camurana di Medolla with code 2566, Varana di Serramazzoni with code 1086) and one in the province of Reggio Emilia (Arceto di Scandiano with code 181).
