The history of Entremont

Lait français Entremont

Once upon a time there was Entremont...

The Entremont saga is rooted in Haute-Savoie and begins with a love story ... between three brothers for a cheese: Emmental. You could say the brothers had true flair when it came to business, starting the Entremont dairy in 1948! Two years later and they had already transferred the first wheels of cheese bearing their name from the mountain pastures to their cellars in Annecy.

Their cheese was of excellent quality right from the very beginning of the production of these wheels. Emmental quickly became a star of the cheese section, an essential on any cheeseboard and soon an ingredient grated into cuisines from all over the world. A cheese was born and its story had only just begun...
