Menorca (also called Minorca) is one of Spain’s Balearic islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Menorca is known for its endless beaches, from miles-long sandy crescents to rocky, turquoise-watered bays called “calas” and Pine trees fringed coast.

Cooperative, which was founded in 1966, is made up of 80 farms and associates and is a benchmark for Mahón-Menorca Cheese made with Mahón cow’s milk with a careful preparation and curing process, which gives it excellent quality with Denomination of Protected Origin.
