A creamy history
PDO Bresse Cream and Butter were once made individually on each farm, and over the years these products haven’t changed. The reason being that the environment pretty much hasn’t changed either. These products are made at the heart of Bresse, with the ideal climate, grassy meadows and corn so that the cows benefit from protected biodiversity and a rich and varied diet. You don’t need to be a farming expert to realise that this means their milk is of excellent quality, and therefore so are the end products: cream and butter.
Today, there are only two dairy farms that are authorised to make these products: the Beurrerie Coopérative d’Etrez-Foissiat, the Laiterie d’Etrez and the Laiterie de Bresse in Varennes-Saint-Sauveur.
