Tekovský salámový Syr CHZO

      Tekovsky salamovy syr PGI

Tekovský Salámový Syr PGI is a natural semi-hard, ripened full-fat cheese made with pasteurised cow's milk.

Tekovský Salámový Syr PGI is produced in several municipalities in the Tekov region, Slovak.

The processing of milk into cheese in the Tekov region dates back to 1905, when one of the first cooperative dairies in Slovakia was set up in the town of Bátovce. The production of "salami-shaped" cheese, and of that which is known today as Tekovský Salámový Syr PGI, only became relatively important after the Second World War, when dairies were able to offer work to women, thereby becoming a source of support for the region.


Tekovský Salámový Syr PGI is a cylinder shape which is reminiscent of a salami (salámový syr). In the case of smoked varieties, the colour is golden-yellow and the taste is typically smoky. The unsmoked cheese is slightly yellowish in colour, has a soft consistency and an acidulous, milky and mildly aromatic taste.
