Bryndza probably came to Slovakia in the course of the settling of northern Slovakia by the Vlachs from the 14th century to the 17th century. Ján Vagač started to produce the local variety of Slovenská Bryndza and in 1787 he founded the first factory for producing the cheese in Detva. Today, around 4,000 tons of Bryndza are produced in Slovakia annually. Slovenská Bryndza from Slovakia was granted a Chránené Geografické Označenie (CGO) in July 2008.
Bryndza Podhalańska from Poland was granted a Chroniona Nazwa Pochodzenia (CNP) in June 2007.
