The Origin

<p>The Origin</p>

Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP is the best Mozzarella money can buy. Made only from the creamy and nutritious milk of the water buffalo, this famous fresh Italian cheese is hand made by artisan producers in the DOP - Denominazione di Origine Protetta - of Campania in Southern Italy.

Originally made popular in the 18th century by the elegant Bourbon Royal Farmhouse of Carditello near Naples, where water buffalo were bred for their milk, today Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP is made only by selected certified dairies located between the Greco Roman city of Paestum, South East of Naples, and Agro Pontino, an area of former marshland in the Lazio region. This is the area of origin established by the Consortium for the protection of this very special Mozzarella di Bufala: the fertile land and mild climate are perfect for the production of richer and more nutritious buffalo milk.
