Poland: still problems with OSCYPEK
The Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza reports that only one baca (senior shepherd in the Tatra mountains) is allowed to produce OSCYPEK. He is not able to satisfy the market demand for this kind of product of course. Consumers may find similar cheese in spindle shapes at Gubalówka markets with its names changed to "traditional", "goat's cheese", "salty" or "golka". Polish highlanders are indignant at the European Union's rules regarding the production process of OSCYPEK.
50 thousand Polish zloty is the financial penalty for OSCYPEK's sale?! Who will pay so much? Nobody will take the risk. It should be better but it is worse. Previous articles by Class46 regarding OSCYPEK PDO include
