We mainly sell our products in organic retailers, where we are the supplier offering the widest range of cheeses and dairy products. We can also be found in the organic aisles of supermarkets and hypermarkets and in a selection of cheese shops, in France and for export.

“We are the only producer of organic Gruyère labelled France IGP. R’Bio is the only brand of French Emmental made with organic raw milk (apart from retailer own brands) in organic retailers.”

… FROM LOCAL AND FAIR TRADE CHANNELS

Right from the very start, we have based our business on developing the local fair trade dairy industry (north-north fair trade initiative), with the objective of achieving a fair price for milk producers. We play an active role in the construction of these channels.
