Nério Schlichting lives in Major Gercino, in the community of Diamante. He produces artisanal cheese. He learned it from his parents.
But his technique may disappear because of the laws established by the Health Surveillance in Brazil.
Now, a project created by the Slow Food Movement is preserving the production of artisanal cheese made from raw milk.
The project values and certifies the food so that producers have permission to sell their cheese.
In September, Mr. Nério Schlichting traveled to ‘Terra Madre’ in Turin, Italy, to show his product and participate in the Slow Food Movement.
