Specialty Food Association

French Cheesemaker’s Brands Win Gold, Silver and Bronze

Dieue-sur-Meuse, France, November 2022 – La Fromagerie Henri Hutin garnered four awards at the World Cheese Awards in Wales on November 2, 2022, the only French Brie producer to win honors in the Brie category. Accolades include Silver for Belletoile’s Triple-Crème Brie while Bronze was awarded to Brie Couronne’s Double-Crème Brie and Tours de Paris’s Brie in a 7-oz. oval format. Gold was bestowed upon the maker’s Belletoile Spreadable Fresh Goat Cheese.

While the Belletoile brand is well-known for its signature, rich and creamy cow’s milk cheese, Triple-Crème Brie, its Spreadable Fresh Goat Cheese is also appreciated for its organoleptic qualities, making it a Gold winner. The all-natural spread offers a fresh taste with a smooth, whipped texture.

Henri Hutin’s Brie Couronne Double-Crème Brie, made from milk of pasteur-raised cows, has been a longtime favoriate thanks to its mild and buttery flavor, combined with a creamy texture.

The company’s third Brie to win an award winner is the latest addition to its Tours de Paris range: a 7-oz. oval Brie with a thin white rind which envelops a soft, straw-colored creamy interior and provides a mild, mellow flavor.

“It is such an honor for our cheesemakers to not only win a number of awards in the Brie category, but to be the only French product to do so!,” begins Christel Vibrac, Export Manager of La Fromagerie Henri Hutin. “And for our fresh whipped goat cheese spread to win Gold attests to our commitment to quality in every cheese we make.”
