Let’s celebrate Bastille Day!

Jul 14, 2021

Let’s celebrate Bastille Day, French national day and most important bank holiday in France! July 14th is traditionally considered as the symbol of the French Revolution as it marked its beginning through the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789.

Did you know that cheese technologies were already extensively studied during these unprecedented times? The Systematic Dictionary of the Sciences, Arts, and Crafts edited between 1751 and 1772 under the direction of Diderot and D’Alembert included articles focusing on cheeses such as Comté and Gruyère.

From its earliest origins in 8000 BCE to the late modern period, cheesemaking has always been part of the landscape through different forms and levels of complexity. As a cheese culture producer for more than a century, we are proud to contribute to its evolution with our innovative solutions!
