Guarantee of authenticity

The Mahón-*Menorca is elaborated in pieces of different formats: big, with a weight that oscillates between 2,5 and 3,5 kg; average pieces, of 1,5 to 2 kg; and small pieces of roughly 1 kg. In addition it is commercialised in different presentations: half piece, quarter, eighth and sliced.

The Regulating Council is the body in charge of overseeing the authenticity and quality of Mahón-Menorca cheese. This body provides regulations and a quality standard that all denominated cheeses have to comply with.

Once the cheese has passed the quality controls, the Regulation Council identifies each piece or portion of cheese with a numbered label.

When buying Mahón-Menorca cheese, it is essential to ensure that is shows this numbered label. 

This is the only guarantee of authenticity.
