Latteria di Chiuro - Chiuro (SO)
Social cooperative for milk and cheese making, Chiuro Dairy has been founded in 1957 in the heart of Valtellina countryside, in Sondrio province, in the North-West of Italy.
Nowadays the cooperative is constituted by 80 members, local cows' breeders whose farms are spread along 30 kmq, moving from Chiuro factory site and its surroundings, so the milk doesn't have to travel and can be transformed very fresh.
The members raise their cows with hey coming from their Valtellina meadows and with the grass from the pastures where the animals can graze freely in alpage.
Traditional breeding, to respect the health of the cows and the quality of milk, meets the best new technologies in production: a perfect marriage to get high quality products.
Yogurt is produced with milk and confettura extra, both produced in Valtellina: the milk comes only from the members of the Dairy, whereas confetture are produced by the local social cooperative Il Sentiero in Morbegno, with fruits produced in their orchards in Valtellina.
