It is the most controlled supply chain and this confirms the fact that food safety is in the first place”. To say Claudio Destro, president of Dqa (Department of agri-food quality), speaking at the conference ‘The 40 years of the Consortium for the protection-history and future of buffalo mozzarella from Campania dop’. “On the dairies – he recalled – we carried out 3 annual visits including surprise samples on the milk and mozzarella samples. To this is added the traceability of bovine milk, as requested by Mipaaf. We have implemented a new even more restrictive platform to be able to check all the dairies and farms and to have even more effective data processing “.” The sore point – admitted Destro – is the reality of frozen milk. As of April 21 there were 40 million kilos, all milk that is downgraded but which it is not dop. Today we must give consumers certainties and examples of sustainability, drug reduction and food safety “.
