Le Pettigrew

Fromagerie des Basques

Bas-Saint-Laurent


Firm

M.F. : 25% Moisture : 42%

This firm semi-cooked cheese is made from pasteurized milk, and contains no modified milk ingredients. Its firm texture melts in the mouth, and its exquisite flavour combines nobility, finesse and character. It is a cheese worth discovering!

Le Pettigrew proudly bears the name of the company’s founding family. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Fromagerie des Basques wanted to honour its steadfast builders, who are still working and passionate about growing their business. Born from French know-how and creative drive, this cheese is the first of its kind to be offered by the Fromagerie des Basques.

Le Pettigrew is available at the Fromagerie des Basques and in the refrigerated section of supermarkets, convenience stores and service stations as well as in several fine grocery stores and specialty grocery stores, from La Pocatière to the Gaspésie region and all the way to the border of New Brunswick.
