Campaigners from Stilton in Cambridgeshire are taking their fight to the Government today to be allowed to make the cheese that bears the name of their village.
Under EU law, Stilton can only be made by a few dairies in the East Midlands, where it is believed to have originated.
The Cambridgeshire MP Shailesh Vara is backing calls for a review of the decision.
"We hope the Minister will look favourably upon our application.
If he looks favourably, then we can proceed with buying new equipment so we can make the cheese.
We can also submit our application to DEFRA, and then to the European Union."
