Italy could derail landmark EU-Canada trade deal – and it’s all because of cheese

A ROW over cheese is threatening to derail a landmark trade deal between the EU and Canada with Italy’s Eurosceptic Five Star Movement digging its heels in in a bid to protect Italian “specialist foods”.

Mr Centinaio said he wanted to check whether those not covered were exclusively local products and therefore unlikely to be exported to Canada. If that was not the case, Italy could push to add more.

According to EU regulations, only the Greek variety can be labelled as feta, defined as as a brined cheese made in Greece from sheep milk, sometime mixed with up to 30 percent of goat’s milk.
