Coopérative Isigny Sainte-Mère

In 1932 a group of 42 farmers banded together and founded this dairy cooperative with a specific goal in mind – to promote and protect the unique terroir of mineral rich grazing pastures that surround the town of Isigny-sur-Mer. Camembert au lait cru, mimolette, pont l’évêque and AOC butter are a few of the products that bear the Isigny Sainte-Mère name, a name that is now well known all over the world. Around 40% of the dairy products produced here are exported to places as far away as Thailand, Mexico and Australia. It also holds the distinction of being the only producer of a recognized AOC crème fraîche, the AOC Crème d’Isigny. Attached to the cooperative is a boutique that is famous for its luscious homemade ice cream, available every summer.
