Le Gruyère AOP® 101
Non GMO, lactose free and gluten free.
Le Gruyère AOP is a delightful cheese that originated in the French-speaking Gruyère district in the Canton of Fribourg. Farmers began making Le Gruyère in 1115, and it’s still prepared today in small village dairies, following to the same delicious traditional process.
Le Gruyère is a slow-maturing cheese that takes five months to a year to reach its full maturity. As it ages, Le Gruyère’s taste and texture become more intense—from nutty and creamy to earthy with a faint grain when matured. This is largely due to the high-quality standards of our dairy farmers, in order to produce first-class pure milk and a natural, wholesome product.
Le Gruyère in a Wide Variety of Foods
Le Gruyère is a nutty, sweet and versatile cheese that can be eaten on its own as a snack, or with other foods. Some of our favourite Le Gruyère recipes feature creamy, cheesy macaroni, fluffy souffles or just a handful of walnuts and some pear slices. However, it’s most widely known as the gooey, delicious melted cheese that sits on top of french onion soup. Yep—that’s Le Gruyère!
