What does D.O.C. mean?

France and Italy operate a system to protect certain indigenous cheeses. It goes under the acronym D.O.C. (denominazione di origine controllata).

In 1955 the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, in conjunction with a consortium of cheese-makers, set out to identify suitable candidates for D.O.C. regulation. They agreed on standards of production and determined areas where cheeses in question could be made. So far 26 kinds of cheese have been given the D.O.C. classification, and more will undoubtedly follow.

Identifying and promoting indigenous cheeses in this way helps to protect them from being copied, while guaranteeing the consumer a level of quality. It also brings to the attention of the public artisan cheeses that might otherwise have become extinct.

Inspectors regularly visit the cheese-makers. If a cheese sold under D.O.C. label fails to comply with the regulations, the producer can be heavily fined and legal action may be taken. The character of an individual cheese will depend upon the grazing, the season and the skills of the cheese-maker. D.O.C. status, however, guarantees an overall standard.
