For our French cheeses we have partnered with Beillevaire.
Small company started in the 1980s in the West of France by Pascal Beillevaire, a dairy farmer.
All cheeses are artisan or farmhouse, produced or handpicked by Pascal, selected for their quality and originality.
Made in a workshop located in Gavray, Normandie. It is the collaborative work of know-how and passion of the cheesemaker Pierre Marty, his team and Beillevaire. Gavray is one of the last two artisan and independent Camembert de Normandie PDO makers. It is an honour to be part of the restrictive club of cheese makers striving to keep the traditional French cheese making alive.
How it's made
The raw milk is collected daily from several farms located not far from the dairy. Produced using traditional artisanal methods, the Camembert de Normandie PDO is handcrafted with a traditional ladle.
Matured for at least 21 days, our Camembert de Normandie develops nice woody flavours. It is endowed with the aromatic fullness of the lush green pasture.
In July 2019, for the second year in a row, our Camembert de Normandie won the gold medal at the Camembert general competition organised by the prestigious “Confrérie des chevaliers du Camembert”.
