Brillat Savarin FR

A network that honours its heritage

We like the word “network” and everything it implies about solidarity and shared projects. As a result of the network’s determination, Brillat-Savarin has managed to protect the precious heritage of its cheese-making tradition. This same desire to pass on an unrivalled form of expertise persuaded the network to seek PGI status, which was awarded to Brillat-Savarin on 19 January 2017.

 

In the early 2000s, Brillat-Savarin cheese manufacturers and the dairy trade organisations worked together to define the characteristics specific to Brillat-Savarin, with the aim of ensuring that the product’s name remained a promise of reliability in consumers’ eyes.
