Dear colleagues and friends,


The 12th Mountain Cheese meeting will be organised by the University of Padova (Italy) in the Veneto region from the 20th to the 22nd of June 2017. Save the dates!

The general topic of the meeting will be “The terroir of mountain cheeses; a focus on microbes, animals and production systems”.  This meeting will give us the opportunity to foster research connections and create a new dynamic between scientists and members of the cheese production chains.

1.       New insights on microbiota, from the environment of the farm to the cheese

2.       Phenotyping of milk properties interesting for cheese-making

3.       The farming system and cheese qualities

21st of June: Visit in an alpine farm of the Dolomite Mountains, on-farm short communications

22nd of June: Technical session and visit of Venice

-          Morning: an exchange meeting (topic to be defined) between researchers and members of the cheese production chains.
