The traditional Emmental de Savoie is made from cow milk in the Savoie and Haute Savoie regions in France. Each wheel of Emmental de Savoie weighs around 70 kg, which requires more than 1,000 litres of milk, making it one of the largest cheeses in the world! 

La petite histoire: Some say that the holes in Emmental cheese are due to tiny particles of hay that remain in the milk during milking and produce carbon dioxide during fermentation. According to others, the holes appear with aging because the cheese is kept in a cold cellar and then transferred to a warmer one. 

Our Emmental de Savoie is awarded IGP (“Indication Géographique Controlée”, which means Protected Geographical Indication). This distinction recognises an agricultural product, raw or processed, whose quality, reputation or other characteristics are linked to its geographical origin. Carrying the IGP label protects the name of the product throughout the European Union.
