The story of a small, great adventure
The fertile countryside around Cremona, a complex world economic context and 19 courageous farmers who decide to gather together. It was 1933 when the story of PLAC began. A cooperative that was born from the desire to share skills and resources in order to face difficulties together.
The collection of the milk provided by each farmer gave new strength and the possibility to produce excellent products of the territory for themselves: Grana Padano, Provolone and Butter.
The word Cooperative comes from Latin cum (together) and opera (toil, care, industry). It means working together and contributing to a common goal. PLAC’s guiding value is to generate value for its members by building something new for the benefit of everybody. Consumers too, through a continuous search for quality.
A search which involves many daily commitments: careful check of the supply chain, passion for a territory with an exceptional microclimate for the production and ageing of the cheeses, respect for artisan traditions from generation to generation. The Story of PLAC is the story of the people who build it every day. Faces, gestures, ideas. Members increase over the decades. Through various eras, many years lived growing and changing, always faithful to its identity. Today PLAC is even closer to the public with a new name and brand: Fattorie Cremona, to express the link with the origins and the territory.
