We use absolutely no colorants! Lepanto Feta P.D.O. is made strictly of goat & sheep milk, so no need to technically affect Lepanto Feta P.D.O.’s colour. Au contraire, all the other, cow’s- milk cheeses do add colorants to look white. Our, Lepanto Feta P.D.O.’s white colour is 100% natural. It’s the actual white!
Why this flavor?
Because our sheep and goats live a natural life, totally free in Nafpaktos Aetolia, far from noise, pollution and fear. They are nurtured with what the land has to offer in a place where the rivers, the sea, the hills and the fields meet in a peaceful and harmonic way. Because this harmony they live in, beautifully affects their milk by giving it a unique flavour, not to be found in any other place of this world. Because our goats & sheep produce milk on their own time and their own way, no production units, no technical methods. Because right after milk delivery, we get down to our cheese production to create Lepanto Feta P.D.O. in only 48 hours. Because, this way, we “capture” all the milk’s health benefits and of course, its unique flavour. Because we add no preservatives and we offer you the actual pure white feta cheese.
Why the glass container?
Because we care about the environment and because we care about your health & quality of diet. Glass is an eco-friendly material and more importantly it does not effect neither the nutritive values nor the flavour of the product. Furthermore, the glass container is a nice hip dinner wear and it’s easy to be put in a microwave oven, in case you want to impress your friends by cooking Greek Saganaki. Its’ cap makes it safe to be carried to the office, to the park, to the country side while it seals your Lepanto Feta P.D.O. in the right temperature.
Why the brine?
We leave our feta’s natural brine inside the glass container because it keeps our actual white cheese fresh, with all its health benefits and flavour intact for one whole year before opening and for 21 days once opened! And because after all, it’s the old good, traditional way to save feta, keeping away modified atmospheres and nitrogen gases.
why in cubes?
A. Because it’s beautiful and B. Because it’s easy to eat in one bite as well as to serve over a salad or in an hors d’ oeuvre plate.
why the sleeve?
Because the sleeve is of an easy-to-recycle material and as we said, we care about the environment, a lot. Furthermore, it’s easy to be removed when putting the glass container in a microwave oven or when served on the dinner table.
