Biobio cheeses are high-quality organic cheeses that contain no chemical dyes, artificial flavours or synthetic additives. They are also made using microbial enzymes derived from a vegetable source, not with rennet. The certified-organic milk used to make the cheeses comes from cow herds raised on Quebec family farms. The pastures, forage and grain used to feed them contain no synthetic products such as pesticides or fertilizers and no GMOs.
The Biobio Aged Cheddar is available in several cheese shops, in specialty grocery stores and in supermarkets.
