Not forgetting our wide selection of charcuterie, caterers, groceries and poultry.
Find us along your taste route in Meximieux, Aranc, Saint-Rambert-en-Bugey and Bourg en Bresse, without forgetting our online store:

We are manufacturers of yogurts, faitselles, beaten white cheese and “Ramequin du Bugey”.
From udder to pot, we have chosen local: raw materials, packaging, manufacturing locations and recipes.

Everything is done with authenticity and respect for the products. Traditional recipes use whole milk, with slow pasteurization in vats to preserve the taste of milk from Ain farms.
The molding of the faireselles is carried out by hand, in two distinct stages, to provide the softness and firmness so appreciated by gourmands.
The specialty of the place? “Fruit yogurt” since 1978, a firm yogurt generously topped with fruit coulis, a real signature product!
And there is also the famous Ramequin, a small cheese with a strong character, typical of Bugey, which is only eaten melted.
Available for sale in a traditional roll, and also in a grated version, ready to melt for greater ease.

The Dairy's products have received 21 medals at the Concours Général Agricole and Concours International de Lyon since 2013! All its products are certified “Saveurs de l’Ain”, and the “Ramequin du Bugey” is certified “my region, its terroirs”.

For all your private or professional occasions, cheese or charcuterie platters, sliced ​​raclette or grated cheese fondue await you on simple order.
With the Click & Collect service, you make your online purchases with complete peace of mind (secure payment) and you collect the order free of charge from the Meximieux store without waiting at the checkout.

The shop offers express and refrigerated delivery in mainland France, by ordering from the merchant site.
