Cheeses from Paška sirana- when it matters!
Paška sirana je nastala davne 1946. kao mala poljoprivredna zadruga. Njezina povijest usko je povezana s povijesti Republike Hrvatske jer je kroz svoj vijek prolazila kroz razne organizacijske oblike sve do 1992. kada postaje privatna tvrtka koja je okupila stotine otočkih obitelji pod svoj krov. Priča o Paškoj sirani nije priča o poslovnom uspjehu jedne obitelji, priča je to o generacijama mnogih otočkih obitelji koje su zajedno disale slani paški zrak, strepile nad svojim stadima u hladnim zimama i sušnim ljetima, priča o stotinama vrijednih ruku koje su oblikovale sir unoseći u njega čežnju za nekim prošlim vremenim i toplim domaćinstvom. Vizija njezinih vlasnika uspjela je brendirati paški sir i omogućiti stotinama obitelji preživljavanje na ovom škrtom otoku na kojem raste tek aromatično bilje. Danas Paška sirana proizvodi 10 vrsta sireva od ovčjeg i kravljeg mlijeka, zapošljava 85 ljudi, izvozi u SAD i EU. Njezin novi proizvodni pogon nalazi se u gradu Pagu, izgrađen je 2008. u skladu s europskim propisima.
This is a very common question. We are always „bombed“ by questions: where are the sheep, there are no cows on Pag…
For all those sceptics : yes, there are no cows on the island of Pag, but there are many cows in Lika county and in other continental parts of Croatia. So, next time when you see a truck from Paška sirana in Lika- that doesn’t mean we make Paški sir cheese from cow’s milk of Lika county. We produce Paški sir cheese from sheep’s milk cheese from Pag exclusively. We have the largest flock of sheep on the island of Pag, around 3000 sheep and 20 people who work in the sector of cattle breeding. The rest of the milk we get from the thousands of families that have their own little flocks, from whom we buy milk and they are our subcontractors. But, Paški sir cheese is just a small part of our production. We produce also Dalmatinac cheese, Pramenko, Trapist, Primorac, Mediterano, Paprenjak, Parenjak, SoLun, Pagus…and milk for these cheeses we get in the continental part of Croatia.
So, don’t believe sceptics. Believe us and we won’t let you down…
No matter how big cheeselover you are, please your imagination and make a cheese plate, put some fruit or nuts, pour some olive oil or honey and indulge in cheese …Let the timeless taste of Mediterranean carry you away…
…because… “A cheese may disappoint. It may be dull, it may be naive, it may be oversophisticated. Yet it remains cheese, milk’s leap toward immortality.”Clifton Fadimen
Life is great. Cheese makes it better.
