Campaign 2 has now finished. Thank you for your support. All cheese should be delivered by the end of March.
‘Save-A-Cheese’ and help the stricken cheesemakers rebuild their lives and warehouses by buying Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan) from the devastated artisan cheesemakers in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy hit by 2 earthquakes in a short space of time on the 20th & 29th May 2012.
As this save-a-cheese campaign goes live, the local rescue services are still busy rescuing the cheeses from the Parmigiano-Reggiano warehouses and the latest information we have is that these will be ready for collection by the end of September and sent out in October. We started Campaign 2 on 19/10/12 and the cheese saved in this campaign will be sent out end February.
You can save a cheese by buying a 1kg wedge for £22. This includes postage & packaging to your home address. Average retail price in the UK is at least £25/kg, but then you still have to go to the shop to buy it. Now it will be delivered straight to your home.
So not only are you helping the Parmesan cheesemakers but you are also getting a bargain.
The cheeses will be directly imported from the region, they will then be cut, weighed and sent out to the ‘cheese-savers’.
