The Gruyère AOP

Taking its name from the magnificent region from which it comes; Gruyère AOP has been produced in our region since at least the twelfth century. This cheese made from unpasteurized cow’s milk benefits from the long traditional know-how of the master cheese makers and refiners.

It owes its distinctive taste, which is both subtle and sophisticated, to the quality of the pasture lands of the Fribourg countryside, to its traditional production methods and to an excellent maturation in the cellars, for up to 18 months. Each wheel is marked with the notation Gruyère AOP.

Despite the fact that the production area of Gruyère AOP extends to the various regions of French speaking Switzerland, 50% of the cheese are produced in the canton of Fribourg. From the many touristic opportunities which are available, for those who wish to discover the method of production of the cheese, educational routes to the demonstration cheese dairies passing by countless mountain cheese dairies, are a delight for the taste buds and the eyes.

Gruyère AOP enjoys a reputation which extends far beyond our borders. It not only occupies a place of honour on the cheeseboards of the most sophisticated connoisseurs but is always ready for use in many culinary recipes.
