The history behind
Perenzin Latteria

How many family dramas can be settled during 120 years of history? Just think about 5 generations of brothers, parents, sons and also grandparents who work together and try and imagine how many fights!

In the end, however, it doesn’t matter if brothers and sisters don’t agree with each other, nor does it matter if husband and wife part from each other, in our family what really matters is CHEESE and to keep going, in any case; grandpa Egidio used to say: “Cows don’t go on holidays, don’t you know?” (translated from typical local dialect).

The passion for craftmanship and the commitment towards milk processing are the values that always enable us to overcome any obstacle.

Today almost 20 people that work within production are part of Perenzin family, as well as some hundreds of people that manage the cow and goat barns in our territory and finally thousands of people all around Italy and worldwide who appreciate our cheeses everyday.

We like to think it this way and we thank you all for this.

International Academy of Dairy Art

The AIAC, Italian acronym for International Academy of Dairy Art, was founded in 2011 by Perenzin Latteria together with the Association of Rural Families, with the aim of promoting training courses on cheesemaking art.

Carlo Piccoli, key figure and current President of the Academy, other than dedicating his time to doing the courses, this way transferring the knowledge he learnt during several years of direct experience, is also a consultant for dairy technology in Italy and abroad.
