About the Cheese

Abondance is a classic mountain cheese from the French Alps, renowned for its rich history dating back to the 12th century.

Protected by French and European law, this esteemed cheese is made exclusively from raw milk sourced in the Haute-Savoie region. Aged for a minimum of 100 days, Abondance develops a distinctive bright orange rind.

The paste inside is smooth, creamy, and rich, offering an intense flavour profile with buttery, nutty notes and a hint of zesty acidity.

Ideal for pairing with medium-bodied white or red wines, ales, and whisky, Abondance is a true testament to traditional cheese-making.

 

Cheesemaker: Fromagerie Cooperative des Hauts de Savoie

Produced by the Fromagerie Cooperative des Hauts de Savoie, Abondance exemplifies the cooperative spirit that has defined French cheese-making for generations.

This cooperative model allows multiple local farmers to pool their milk and resources, enabling the production of larger wheels of cheese that can sustain them through the harsh winter months.

Rooted in a long-standing tradition, this cooperative system is prevalent throughout France, particularly in the Alps, ensuring the preservation of artisan techniques and high-quality cheese production.
