Oka L’Artisan Smoke

Fromagerie d’Oka - Agropur

Laurentides


Firm

M.F. : 28% Moisture : 42%

This firm Swiss cheese is made from pasteurized milk. A new experience in taste: L'Artisan artfully combines the renowned traditional OKA taste with the irresistible flavour and distinct look of a European-style honeycombed cheese. Now with a smoke flavour.

Produced since 1893, OKA is considered to be the oldest Quebec cheese. It has been made by the Agropur cooperative since 1981, when the cooperative bought the famous Fromagerie Oka from the monks. The cheese owes its existence to Alphonse Juin, a cheese maker originally from France, who advised the monks to make cheese in order to remedy their financial woes and thereby ensure their survival. Today, Agropur produces several varieties, including OKA L'Artisan and OKA L'Artisan Smoke.

OKA L'Artisan Smoke is available at the Abbey store and in most speciality cheese shops and supermarkets
