Only the real Le Gruyère AOP is hand-made in western Switzerland… made in 170 small batches, from a recipe that has been passed down for centuries. Its unique, savory flavor starts with the raw milk of cows that are sustained in our local fields. Our cheesemakers produce every day their Gruyère AOP with all their knowledge and emotions, then the maturation is completed in local cellars and caves under strict supervision.

Gruyère AOP is 100% natural, 100% additive free, and naturally free of lactose and gluten - as it has been since it was first produced in 1115 AD.
