Parmigiano Reggiano wins 126 medals and hits a never-before-seen result at the World Cheese Awards, the world’s most important cheese competition that took place this year in Oviedo, Spain, from 3 to 6 November: the international jury made up of 250 experts awarded the historical record of 7 Super Gold medals, 6 of which were won by the dairies belonging to the National team.

Parmigiano Reggiano is now the most awarded cheese in the world and the one that has won more Super Gold than all the others present in the competition.

The records don’t stop there

This year the National Parmigiano Reggiano – made up of 96 dairies from all the provinces of the area, 10 more than in 2019 – has come to be the largest collective mission ever undertaken by an Italian cheese abroad. A group effort that earned the national team 111 medals: 6 Super Gold (best cheese on the table), 28 gold, 50 silver, 41 bronze.

The Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium also sponsored a new award for the best cheese producer which went to the winner of the World Cheese Awards 2021, Silvia Peláez of Queseria Quesos y Besos, for the intense innovation and quality of its products. During the three days in Oviedo, thousands of visitors stopped at the Consortium’s stand to photograph the 21-year-old form of Parmigiano Reggiano, one of the most aged cheeses in the world, which was auctioned for charity on the company’s website.
