Caseificio Artigianale dei F.lli Derosa Srl
The company was founded in the 60s by Louis Derosa’s initiative, an already adept sheep breeder of animals that could be milked, who found himself surrounded by very fertile ground where he founded the first dairy farm in the heart of Gravina for processing of products that derived from sheep's milk, in the high territory of Murgia Barese. Over time, the then called Derosa Luigi cheese factory, has become an important reference point for the typical production from Murgiano Park, basing its products on the collection of milk from local farms. Acquired directly from local farmers, the raw materials guarantee the freshness and authenticity of the products: varied cheese, ricotta, scamorza, ricotta cheese, and many other delicacies. The processing of sheep's milk is made alongside that of cow's milk, beginning the production of typical dairy products from Puglia, such as mozzarella and burrata.
F.lli Derosa artisanal cheese factory is in fact, one of the producers of "Pallone di Gravina", a semi-hard raw cheese produced with raw or pasteurized whole cow's milk, which became a Slow Food stronghold in 2012. The company produces sweet cheese, burrata, stracciatelle, fresh table pecorino, aged pecorino, sheep scamorza, pallone di Gravina sweet and spicy and mozzarella. The desire to know and taste its products was the impulse that gave rise to an initiative that aims to spread the culture of Puglia, a culture that inextricably revolves around food. Twice monthly, and in collaboration with Eataly stores and other businesses, the Account Manager organizes wine tasting sessions in different parts of the peninsula. Encouraged by the positives feedbacks they have managed to get across Italy in order to face the international market, consolidating their recognized professionalism, and being confident that their specialties can be equally well appreciated.
