"Amma" Сooperative won two gold medals at once. The first "gold" was awarded for the brand-name cheese.
"Its main difference is that it is made exclusively from natural products, we do not use any additives. The cheese is produced by a special technology, and its fat content is 45%," YSIA was informed by Deputy Director of the "Amma" Cooperative Vladimir Osipov.
To get a kilogram of cheese, you need at least ten liters of milk and exactly 40 days.
