beaufort -

Beaufort is the name of a cheese from the Savoie region of France made with raw cow's milk. Because it is a family of Gruyère cheese, this cheese is often called "Gruyère de Beaufort".

This cheese is shaped like a wheel with a large size. The diameter of the cheese is 60 centimeters while the height is 21 centimeters. The weight of Beaufort cheese can reach 75 kilograms.

Before being sold in the market, this cheese is checked first by a special committee. If the cheese has met the standard then the cheese will get a green tree emblem on the edge or on the wrapper.

A semi-finished cheese matured for 6 months in a cold cellar. Beaufort cheese that has been matured for more than 6 months can be called "high mountain cheese".
