It all began in Ursy… a small village in the Fribourg countryside. A quiet, peaceful place that was home to a hidden gem: an old quarry that offered the ideal environmental conditions for maturing cheese. Mifroma was founded in 1964 and the quarry was converted into a natural cheese cellar. From its beginnings as a Gruyère ripener, our company quickly established itself as the cheese specialist in Switzerland. For 25 years we have been distributing our products all over the world. Often pioneering and always attuned to the market, what makes us tick is our love of the product and authentic flavors, plus our respect for everything nature has given us and the time it takes to make exceptional cheese.
