About the Cheeses of Europe

Who are we?

The Cheeses of Europe Marketing Council: Composed of French dairy farmers and cheese firms, the Council is led by The French Dairy Inter-Branch Organization (CNIEL). The Council’s mission is to create awareness about the variety of the cheeses of Europe available on the US market and the multiple ways that American consumers can incorporate the cheeses into their diets, their recipes and their lifestyles.

The Cheeses of Europe Marketing Council develops national and regional programs to build awareness and demand for The Cheeses of Europe throughout the United States and the world. Our goal is to create an appealing impression of imported cheeses of Europe that sets them apart as a unique group and strengthens their competitive position in the growing specialty cheese category.
