How to find the cheese dairy number

The cheese dairy number can be found on the wheel label on the rind of your piece of Emmentaler AOP cheese. It is clearly legible on Emmentaler AOP Mild/Classic. On more mature varieties, it may be illegible through the dark rind or may have even rubbed off. Once you’ve located the individual cheese dairy number, you can use it to find out which Swiss cheese dairy made your piece of cheese. Now enter the number in the search box and discover the place of origin of your hand-made Emmentaler AOP.
