    Rivoire

    Rivoire produces and ages Comté based on the ideas of partnership between the earth and the farmer, the farmer and the cheesemaker and the cheesemaker and the affineur, with these relationships epitomized by the business model Alix Jacquemin pioneered by in 1860. Through the business model, milk is delivered from the farm to fruitières daily, where cheese is made and then passed on to affineurs who age the cheese a minimum of 4 months, up to several years. At the conclusion of the process, each person along the supply chain is paid a premium for high quality cheese. In 1886, the daughter of Alix Jacquemin married Louis Rivoire, who continued the family’s business practices. Today, after five generations, the Rivoire family, along with 400 milk producers, 25 fruitières, and 3 head cellarmen, produces 110,000 Comté wheels for worldwide distribution every year, making the name Rivoire synonymous with quality Comté.
