Bra and SlowFood to host Cheese 2015
The tenth edition of Cheese, the international biennial event organised by the Città di Bra and Slow Food, will be held in Bra, Italy, from Friday, September 18 to Monday, September 21. Dedicated to milk in all its shapes and forms, the event has led to the formation of an international network of cheesemakers and dairy artisans, who come together every two years to present their products, meet the public and debate the challenges they face and new critical issues in the dairy world.
This year’s theme is “A journey to mountain pastures”, with a specific focus on the role of mountains and highlands, and will feature accounts from those who have chosen to live and work on mountain pastures and the cheeses they produce, where they preserve an extraordinary biodiversity.
Cheese 2015 http://cheese.slowfood.it/en/ will gather thousands of Italian and foreign producers from all over the world who will describe the dairy situation in their countries and the challenges they face. The event will be used as a platform to denounce critical issues that today influence and limit the small-scale supply chain of food and its commercialisation.
In the last edition of Cheese, which took place in 2013, the Cheese Market comprised 188 stands (136 Italian and 52 foreign), 43 Slow Food Italian Presidia and 17 Slow Food International Presidia. There were 250,000 visitors.
