Quality and respect for the environment

T he Cheese Factory and the family Farm are located between the cities of Capua and Mondragone, a territory within the so-called PDO zone which has one of the largest concentrations of buffalo herds in the world and boasts that its production ranks with the best in terms of quantity and quality. It is an unspoilt area with a deep vocation for agriculture and no industrial plants; every hectare of land is used for agriculture to serve the buffalo sector and it is meticulously cared for by the farmers for whom it is their way of life. This leads them to take great care of the territory and any incident of environmental degradation is avoided. The link with the area, its growth and its respect are fundamental values for La Contadina: all the milk processed comes totally from this area. In order not to disrupt this relationship of continuity and well-being, the Company has installed its own modern wastewater treatment plant and is in the process of building a solar power system. Next target will be the construction of a biogas plant capable of producing methane using slurry from the farm.
