A real Emmentaler AOP can be identified as the original at a glance thanks to the cheese dairy mark and the individual cheese dairy number on the rind. The cheese dairy mark guarantees that the cheese has been produced under controlled conditions and meets the strict quality requirements set out in the Emmentaler Switzerland functional specification document. The cheese dairy number allows every Emmentaler AOP to be traced back to its origin and place of production, guaranteed.
Where does your cheese come from? Just go to emmentaler.ch, and on the Cheese dairies page, enter the four or eight-digit cheese dairy number on the cheese rind to discover which cheese dairy made your Emmentaler AOP cheese wheel.
