We remind you what makes an original!

The king of cheese

If children draw a cheese, they draw an Emmental. It is called the king of cheeses and yet Emmental is the most copied cheese.

With the Save the Emmentaler campaign launched by Gourmino and the cheesemakers, we are reminding what makes an original and how an Emmentaler AOP differs from industrially produced large-hole cheeses.

The original is...

200 lbs / 90 cm diameter / made from fresh raw milk from local farmers / decentrally handcrafted in cheese dairies / always has a rind /aged in the dairy of production for a minimum of 3 months.
These are the characteristics of the original Emmentaler AOP. Because the name was not protected for a long time, Emmentaler cheese is the most copied cheese in the world.
