Being such a natural product, no labelling is required. Minimum 12 months of seasoning. Some are season over 30 months.

Grana Padano; Produced in the area nearby Parma, Piemonte, Lombardia, Emiglia Romagna and Veneto. Made of cow milk. Minimum 9 months seasoning is required. Some caterers think Grana is better in cooking, being slightly softer.
