Italy earthquake causes EUR 200 million losses to the cheese industry
The 6.0-magnitude quake north of Bologna that killed seven people and toppled centuries old buildings also caused enormous damage to the region’s world-renown cheese production.
In all, some 10 collective Parmesan aging warehouse and cheese production sites have sustained damage in the quake, affecting 300 000 wheels of cheese. At least 10 percent of the region’s Parmesan production has been impacted.
Total agriculture losses, including lost cheese, are estimated at EUR 200 million, The Huffington Post reported.
Manufacturers are currently examining what part of the damaged cheese could be saved.
As reported, the quake struck 4:04 a.m. Sunday, May 20.
