Marking cheese according to law

Marking Labeling cheese

Marking cheese according to the law requirement

Cheese packaging must have certain markings. The purpose of these markings is to protect the consumer from deception and to announce the supply of certain information about the product.

Protection of consumers

In cheese production, the “tricksters” have no chance. The general conditions are unstoppable, as defined in the Austrian food book “Käse-Codex” (cheese codex). The goal is a high level of consumer protection and ensuring quality production. The legal basis for all manufacturers and the distribution of foodstuffs is the Food Safety and Consumer Protection Act (LMSVG).

Regulations in the “cheese codex”

  • Definitions
  • Composition and properties of cheese
  • Requirements for the production
  • Use of additives
  • Rules for performing the quality inspection
  • Labeling regulations (according to LMKV)

LMKV = food labeling regulation

Specifically – The EU origin of origin protection

Local cheeses reflect a piece of the culture and identity of a region such as

  • Vorarlberg mountain cheese
  • Vorarlberg Alpine cheese
  • Tyrolean mountain cheese
  • Tyrolean Alpine cheese
  • Tyrolean gray cheese
  • Gailtaler Alpine cheese

This origin wants to be protected! The cheeses only deserve the geographical indication of origin in the name because they were produced in this region according to the rules of manufacture, composition and properties laid down there.
