THE NEW AMBASSADOR FOR GOURMET FRENCH CHEESE
In 2010, UNESCO added French gastronomy to the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The Country of 1000 Cheeses, France is renowned worldwide for its age-old expertise; a foundation of its gastronomy, that has helped build the reputation of which it is so proud.
Ile de France is the brand for French cheese worldwide. It gives its name to a range of great cheeses from France such as Camembert, Brie and Roquefort that are exported to many destinations.
The name Ile de France is a tribute to the ocean liner of the same name, which, in 1936, was the first vessel to import camembert and brie into the United States. This is a reference to the elegant luxury of the 1930s and the way of life aboard those legendary liners.
Ile de France, French Cheese for when you need the best!
