The cheese

Majorero Cheese has been protected by the Protected Designation of Origin since February 1999. It is made following traditional methods with raw or pasteurized Majorera goat milk, with the eventual addition, when it is intended for maturation, of up to a maximum of 15% Canarian sheep milk. The production area is the island of Fuerteventura (Canary Islands), where the Majorera goat is perfectly adapted to the arid environment of the island. It was the first cheese from the Canary Islands with Designation of Origin, and the first goat’s milk cheese in Spain.
