Pule is produced in Zasavica Nature Reserve by the idea of Slobodan Simic, former MP Serbian and Zasavica Special Nature Reserve Manager.
A distinctive dairy product of Serbian cuisine, pule is reportedly the "world's most expensive cheese", fetching 1,000 Euros per kilogram. It is so expensive because of its rarity: there are only about 100 jennies in the landrace of Balkan donkeys that are milked for pule-making and it takes 25 litres (6.6 gallons) of milk to create one kilogram (2.2 pounds) of cheese.
