specialty food news New Openings What Mifroma is passionate about. We are passionate about quality cheese, and particularly proud of our Le Gruyère AOP : a superbly flavorful cheese with a typical salty tang. Le Gruyère AOP cheesewheels are aged in a natural rocky cavern in Ursy, small Swiss village at the foot of the Alps. It is here, in this exceptional environment, that Le Gruyère AOP acquires its succulent taste and refined character. Choose Le Gruyère AOP from Classic range for all the family to Cavern range, for true cheese gourmets.
