The Regulating Council

The Regulating Council is in charge of supervising the use of the Protected Denomination of Origin, making sure all the cheeses that bear the manchego name meet the quality and source requirements set in the Council’s quality specifications.  The Council certifies all cheeses identified as manchego cheeses fit all the requirements for being considered true manchego cheeses.

Manchego Cheese www.themanchegocheese.comThe Denomination of Origin Regulating Council Certification Service personnel, carry out periodical audits and inspections on cheese dairies registered in the Protected Denomination of Origin to check that they comply with the requirements established in the Specifications authorised by the European Union.

The Regulating Body’s laboratory also carries out physical-chemical and microbiological analyses on the Manchego cheese, to guarantee that it is fit for consumption.

As an accompaniment to the laboratory tests, the Manchego Cheese Protected Denomination of Origin tasting panel makes a sensorial analysis of the cheese, rejecting batches that do not meet the minimum established requirements as regards the external appearance, smell, taste and texture.

Another important job the Regulating Council is to promote the product, informing consumers of manchego cheese’s fine qualities and the advisability of considering it an important part of a balanced diet.
