The Bank of Cheese

If you live in a specific area of Italy and produce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, there’s a bank that will take your cheese as collateral. Credito Emiliano works with local producers to provide loans for needed equipment on their farms and takes their cheese while it ages, keeping it for between 18 and 36 months. With over 300,000 wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano and each wheel valued up to the thousands of dollars, banking on cheese is a safe investment.
