A story of Brie and a ship

In 1936, Alfred Schratter, a cheese enthusiast, wanted to introduce France’s best cheese to the USA. The new refrigeration installed on the Ile de France liner made this possible, and he contracted the first shipment of Brie in 1936. Today, Brie is one of the most sought-after cheeses in the USA, and Ile de France remains a top seller in the United States, with both their Brie, Camembert and fresh Goat cheese
