In central Spain, the arid plains of La Mancha are famous for their windmills and Manchego, a cheese made out of ewe's milk that is one of the best-known representatives of the country's gastronomy.That is a problem for cheese producers in Latin America's second-largest economy, where Mexican Manchego represents nearly 15 percent of total cheese sales.So the National Chamber of Dairy Industries in Mexico has said it will continue using Manchego as a name, which it says is "generic". The Manchego AOC label even includes the silhouette of the wandering knight.More than 700 Spanish farmers and 65 producers depend on the cheese for their livelihood.In the name of all such producers, Altares wants a ban on using the name Manchego in Mexico.
