Parmesan cheese producers suffer after Italy earthquake


A week after a powerful earthquake hit northern Italy, Parmesan farmers are feeling the economic repercussions.

Stock in warehouses was damaged by the earthquake and has had to be sold off cheaply. Thousands of wheels of Parmesan cheese slid off warehouse shelves and crashed to the floor in the quake.

The earthquake on 20 May killed seven people and damaged buildings across the Emilia-Romagna region.
