Originand know-how

For centuries, Savoie families have been making butter from milk cream, while the rest of the milk has been used to make a small-sized cheese: Tomme de Savoie.
This is how historically Tomme de Savoie has existed in a “lean” version which suits the modern trend! 

Today, only the authentic Tomme de Savoie enjoys a Protected Geographical Indication serving to guarantee the Savoie source of the milk used, as well as the production and maturing processes. To help consumers recognise the cheese, a mark bearing the lettering “Savoie” appears on the outer edge of the cheese, stamping the Tomme de Savoie with a seal of quality.
