Vacherin Mont-d’Or has been marketed by the Dairy Society in Les Charbonnières since 1865 and has received many awards.
A Vacherin Mont-d’Or weighs less than 3 kg and measures a maximum of 32 cm in diameter. It has been protected since 2003 with the Controlled Origin Appellation guaranteeing its origin and its manufacturing process.
