An exceptional Camembert

A unique flavour since 1912

Gillot Camembert PDO is an exceptional cheese crafted in keeping with the ancestral traditions of master cheese makers. Made from raw milk collected from producers in Normandy pasture land, each cheese is hand-ladled on tables.

Terroir, men

and Normande cows

The quality of our milk is by no means accidental but is the result of close collaboration between farmers and the cheese dairy, as well as particularly demanding specifications, thus guaranteeing the distinctiveness of our Camembert de Normandie and Pont l’Evêque:

  • The cows graze on pastures for at least 6 months per year
  • 80% of the feed is produced on the farm
  • At least 50 % of the herd are Normande cows
  • Each cow has the equivalent of half a football pitch
  • And of course a defined geographical area

It’s official: all our PDO farmers can now certify that their milk is produced by animals fed a GMO-free diet.
