Atalanta’s Entremont Cheese Brand Unveiled New Products; Marissa DeMaio Shared

Tuesday, January 26th, 2021

Oh, what I wouldn’t give to be skiing in the French Alps right now, and consumers everywhere may feel the same way. Luckily, Atalanta’s Entremont cheese brand can offer all of us the next best thing: delicious, fresh cheese made from French Alpine milk. With a host of high-quality varieties already available to consumers, the brand is looking to expand its portfolio with a selection of rich new offerings that will satisfy cheese lovers far and wide. I sat down with Marissa DeMaio, Director of Marketing, to get a glimpse into what the future holds for the fine-tuned brand.

Marissa DeMaio, Director of Marketing, Atalanta“Entremont, the flagship of French dairy brand Sodiaal, is committed to crafting cheeses with fresh French Alpine milk from their cooperative dairy farms,” explains Marissa. “Meaning ‘between mountains,’ Entremont started in 1948 when the three Entremont brothers, François, Marius, and Edouard, began maturing and selling Emmental in Annecy, in the heart of the French Alps. With a focus on quality and transparent traceability, Atalanta is proud to represent Entremont’s portfolio of cheeses.”

With such a rich history to accompany Entremont, the brand is looking to continue carving out its legacy with the introduction of several new products that are currently on the horizon. As Marissa tells me, the new products are set to include a three-milk cheese as well as several blue cheese offerings.

Currently, Entremont offers several authentic French cheese options that are a great addition for retail and foodservice partners as they come perfectly portioned for retail and in bulk. The high-quality varieties will serve as both a great complement to popular menu items and as the central ingredient in new recipes.

Made from top-quality ingredients, some of Entremont’s most renowned varieties include:

  • Swiss-style Emmental – made with fresh milk collected from its small family farms in Brittany in the west of France and ripened on spruce boards in its temperature-controlled cheese cave in Annecy, Entremont is the top producer of Emmental in France
  • Comté PDO – crafted in the Jura mountains, Small family farmers pool its fresh milk and transform it into delicious cheese in the region’s fruitières, or traditional mountain dairies. During months of ripening on natural wood, expert cheese agers coax out a symphony of complex flavors and aromas to create this delightful variety
  • Brie – Enriched with cream from the making of Entremont Cantal PDO cheese, this variety offers a creamy flavor and luxuriously smooth texture. Brie is the newest addition to the line and is available in 3kg and 1kg formats

“Thanks to its local sourcing, Entremont provides a wide variety of PDO, PGI, and specialty cheeses that reflect their unique land and tradition,” says Marissa. “Entremont is France’s number one producer of Emmental, Comté PDO, Bleu d’Auvergne, Cantal PDO, and many more kinds of cheese. Our mission is to bring people together through a shared love of cheese.”
