Did you know, Emmentaler is one of the biggest cheese around the world with a weight ranging between 75 and 120 kg per wheel?

Its name comes from the Emme valley where cheesemakers first started producing it hundreds of years ago. Historians identify its origin as early as in the 13th century. From Bern in Switzerland, this alpine cheese is characterized by its small holes left by air bubbles.

The paste of Swiss Emmentaler is supple and tender, with milky and hazelnut notes. Pleasant and easy to eat at every moment of the day.

Can be stored in the fridge for two to three weeks after being opened, or two months if the packet is untouched.

Wine Pairing:

Red wines (Cotes de Beaune, Beaujolais)
White wines (Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer)

Appelation Origine Protegge (AOP) label

  1. Nicolas Guyon

    It has a firm texture and a nutty, slightly sweet flavor that’s very enjoyable. Perfect for melting, or snacking on its own

  2. PY

    The first ever cheese that I tasted was Emmental. Love that subtle sweetness.

  3. Paul C

    Just a standard emmental. A mild nutty flavour much as you’d expect.

    Its pretty good, but not my cup of tea

  6. Claud

    I ate it with salad

  7. Vicky Fung

    I cooked it with Gruyère Swiss Reserve for my Mac and cheese pasta, which is so creamy and milky but not so tasty. Also delicious to just eat it raw with nuts and dried fruit, highly recommend!
