Pag cheese is our most famous and most awarded cheese. Paski sir (Pag cheese-PDO) is the flagship of our production and synonymous with the world-award-winning quality of Gligor. It is also the first cheese with which Ivan Gigora received the first international recognition for Croatian cheese, and it is certainly the most awarded Croatian cheese.
Pag cheese is a limited product, obtained exclusively from sheep's milk from the island of Pag, and only about 200 tons of Pag cheese are produced annually in all registered cheese factories and OPGs on the entire island. Its limitation is related to the total number of Pag sheep that can graze freely on the pastures of the island of Pag.
Sirana Gligora, along with her own small herd, buys Pag sheep's milk from about a hundred families on the island of Pag in most of the island's towns, and that every day during the milking season - which lasts from January to the end of June.
Pag cheese is produced using a traditional process, according to the specification adopted by the Association of Pag Cheese Producers, and as such was protected by a mark of authenticity at the level of Croatia, and PDO EU level.
