What the visitors say...

Valérie Henbest, Importer and Director of Smelly Cheese, Australia "I have a shop in Australia, and I'm keen to import French cheeses so that our Australian customers can discover them. The Cheese and Dairy Products Show is a dream opportunity to meet our suppliers and make new discoveries. I'm going back home with a wealth of information and new contacts.”

Odran Hervé, gourmet grocer, L'épicerie du coin, Izon, Gironde "This was my first visit to the Salon du Fromage et des Produits Laitiers and it was a brilliant experience, with some fabulous discoveries, and some successful meetings with wholesalers and producers. I found what I was looking for, to add to the cheese range in my gourmet grocery store. As for the show itself, I really appreciated how the aisles were spaced out, so you could talk and taste. The visitors are young and enthusiastic, which is good to see!”

Frédéric Minvielle, cheesemonger, Fromages et Compagnie, Anglet, Basque Country "As a cheesemonger, I took part in several workshops between visits and tastings on the stands. The subjects covered in 2024 were very interesting indeed, very instructive, with relevant content to the current market situation.”
