Battipaglia, our land, the beating heart of Buffalo Mozzarella
Our city Battipaglia and the surrounding territories are considered the homeland of buffalo mozzarella. In fact, in the past these marshy lands, which extended up to Paestum, represented the ideal habitat for the Mediterranean buffalo.
The history and origins of buffalo mozzarella are lost in the mists of time. But the Legend of the Ancient Mozzata of Battipaglia says that this cheese was born from the meeting between a nymph and a young shepherd.
For over thirty years we have been producing and shipping Buffalo Mozzarella all over the world
Buffalo milk is a living, unpredictable material.
You have to chase it every morning, because it is wild just like the animal that produces it. To transform it into a good mozzarella it is necessary to tame it.
And to do this you need to have a sixth sense: something that no one knows what it is, that no one teaches you.
And those who possess it thank the Lord for giving it to them.
– Don Sabatino Sciorio (1929),
Cheesemaker from Battipaglia and grandfather of the founders
