About Coeur de Lion:
Coeur de Lion was formed almost 30 years ago in Ducey, Normandy by a dairy cooperative. Their first success was a creamy, rich-tasting camembert which quickly became a favourite amongst the French. Driven by the success of their camembert, Coeur de Lion have gone on to create a range of new cheeses, including this delicious brie. All the milk used to make Brie Coeur de Lion comes from Normandy, and the areas around Vire, Coutances and Ducey. Coeur de Lion carefully designs and produces packaging with the aim of reducing their impact on the environment, while ensuring the quality of its cheeses.
