The Regional Veterinary Service of Lombardy (northern Italian region) developed guideline on good hygienic practices to improve the safety of milk production and transformation in the mountain pastures and to grant the European acknowledgment (EU seal). Therefore we carried out 26 inspections in Valcamonica (Province of Brescia) and 30 in the Sondrio's province (26% and 16% respectively) in mountain pastures that had required the acknowledgment. The data analysis has shown that in Valcamonica 26.9% of the mountains pastures was conform to the regulations, in Sondrio's province instead 6.6% was conform; the frequency of acceptable conformity level increases respectively to 46% and to 33%, if we also consider the mountains pastures in restructuring phase and with very low level of non conformity. Our study emphasizes the need of structural adjustments of these traditional setting and of education of workers in order to improve the food safety and operator's life quality, and also to promote the maintenance of mountain pastures in the Alpine region.
