No more Vacherin Fribourgeois Beeler

July 16, 2019

The Rolf Beeler Selection Vacherin Fribourgeois is no longer in our portfolio. Its producer, our friend Marc-Henri Horner of the dairy Marsens-Vuippens, has decided to stop exporting his wonderful cheeses to the U.S. The FDA was asking for so many changes that “I basically had to build a new dairy, and their requirements have nothing to do with reality”, says Horner. Of course, he is certified to export to the EU zone, but American bureaucrats who only function when they have their “rule book” at hand tell us what we can eat and what not. What a pity!
