KFAR HAROEH, ISRAEL - MARCH 30: A worker tends to the St. Mor, Camembert and Brie cheeses in the chamber where they are allowed to mature and develop their moulds at the Jacobs family dairy March 30, 2008 in Kfar Haroeh in central Israel. World food prices are soaring in the face of what some analysts are describing as a perfect storm of circumstances - increasing demand from developing economies in Asia, rising fuel prices, severe weather impacting recent harvests and an economic shift to biofuel production. All this leaves the consumer paying more for basic staples such as bread and milk and is likely to have its hardest impact on poorer nations. (Photo by David Silverman/Getty Images)

If you are anything like us, you dream in cheese.

Every meal either includes or is based on the dairy product. For fans of the Camembert cheese, you may have only a short time left with the wheel. That is right, this specific brand is slowly becoming extinct!

The Camembert de Normandie must be labeled PDO. According to the Tasting Table, this labels means that it “came from the land of butter-laden kouign-amann and briny shellfish.” As reported by Bloomberg, the label also proves that the cheese was made in a “specific region in France, made in a historically accurate way.”

Когда папа прилетел из Парижа ???? ???? ???? ???? . . . Что может быть лучше утром, чем чашка кофе с нарезанным тонкими пластинками сыром? Кофе с сыром это очень вкусно) или например обед... или ужин, или сырная тарелка к вину... вообщем ещё надолго моя сырная душа довольна♥️ . Или вечером, после долгой пешей прогулки по любимому городу, возвращаешься домой, не чувствуя ног. Скидываешь туфли, захватываешь с кухни доску, маленький керамический нож, кусочек сыра из запасов и бутылку белого вина с бокалом. Сыр бри, камамбер, с плесенью..ни один ни похож на другой// все по своему неповторимые // . . #камамбер #camembert #camembertcheese #cheese #сыр #питер #париж #парижялюблютебя #спб #папа #изпарижаслюбовью #spbgram #дом #home #france????????

In the Normandy province, “the milk must be hand-ladled in four or more layers into specific molds” reports Bloomberg. The cows that produce the milk also live a very strict lifestyle. With a fat content of at least 38 percent, Tasting Table states that the cows much be fed “local grass and hay”.

Needless, to say this cheese is popular and sold in a variety of French markets. However, if you have ever stopped by Trader Joe’s, you may have noticed their “Camembert Cheese & Cranberry Sauce Fillo Bites”.

Unless you are living in France, it is hard to get your hands on the cheese. Approximately f”our million of the 360 million wheels produced annually” are legitimate says Bloomberg. The cheese is becoming even harder to find since many farmers are no longer willing to take the time to make the complicated cheese. Another part of the issue is that large corporations are purchasing smaller cheese companies. By doing so, they are mass producing the cheese and decreasing the overall quality. Many times, the larger corporations are creating fake versions that are not PDO approved.

These factors are only making the numbers decrease, especially for people living in America. Since there is a laundry list of complex raw milk regulations, only a small number of the cheese actually make it here. People who are living in France, well, they have some time to devour the creamy food.
