This new label can attract tourists and foreign investors in the Loire, where cheese is produced.
The cheese produced in the Quadruple de Montbrison Loire was included in UNESCO's list of intangible cultural heritage. The cheese Loire took this distinction on Monday November 5. He was given to him by the Ministry of Culture.
This label, which rewards and protects property with extraordinary universal values, rewards "know-how" about people and for years Sauvain mayor stressed David Maurel.
Fourme de Montbrison has been produced at more than 1,000 meters altitude in Hautes-Chaumes since the 8th century. He received the AOC (Origin Protected Design) label in 1972 and the AOP (Origin Protected Design) in 2009.
This new label can attract tourists and foreign investors. Producers are currently hoping to be a UNESCO World Heritage site that will consider exporting internationally.
