Petit Vaccarinus returns!

August 30, 2018

The date is set: On September 15 the first batches of the Vacherin Mont-d’Or will be released. So customers in the US can order the Petit Vaccarinus from that date on. One week later the official release party will be held around the Lake of Joux. That day the farmers will bring their animals down for the end of transhumance 2018 in the Jura mountains.

State-of-the-Art traceability

The Vacherin Mont-d’Or is not only one of the most searched cheeses, its production is the most meticulously observed and controlled. Beside weekly controls the AOP has introduced a new website based control which is considered the newest step in traceability from production to sales.

Here are the different steps:

Enter date of milk delivery and analysis of the milk

Enter the required data during the production process

Enter the data when the cheese goes into the cellars for affinage

Enter the data during affinage

Verification and control of all the entries before cheese is released

First data entry at begin of production

Follow all the stages in data entry required by the system

Real time entry
