History of Entremont
And what if Entremont was told to me...
The Entremont saga is rooted in Haute-Savoie and begins with a love story ... that of three brothers for a cheese: the Emmental. The Entremont brothers were on to something when they started their cheese business in 1948! Two years later, they were already bringing the first wheels bearing their name to Annecy from the mountain pastures.
Their cheese was of excellent quality right from the very beginning of the production of these wheels. Emmental quickly became the dominant cheese on cheese counters, a cheese board essential, and later the cheese to melt in dishes of all kinds. A cheese is born, its story has only just begun...
