Isigny fresh milk and its by-products (butter, cream, cheese...) are awarded with many prizes every year, in particular the prestigious Concours Général Agricole in Paris. In 1986, Isigny cream and butter were awarded with an AOC - controlled designation of origin quality label.

So what's the secret behind their success? First and foremost, a top quality basic ingredient. Isigny-Grandcamp's dairy cows graze in particularly favourable pastures: their soil is rich in clay and alluvium. Trace elements from the sea and the surrounding rivers also contribute to the production of milk with a high fat content.
