The Hess Cheese Company has been making cheeses for 4 generations :

  • Otto, the Grand-father made “Emmental” in the Haut-Doubs region
  • René, his son, settled himself in Pommard to also make Emmental, butter and sour cream
  • Inspired by his family’s tradition, Alain the grand son, created a business of dairy products and went door to door in the adjoining villages to sell them
  • Charles is now the 4th generation that represents his father’s business


On the 3rd November 1997, Alain obtained a Master of Cheese.
As people became more and more curious to Alain’s inventions he created the “Délice de Pommard”, the first cheese to ever be rolled with Beaune mustard seeds (from Fallot, mustard maker). Later, Alain declined his cheese in different flavors : cassis buds, Ginger bread and the latest one, Italian summer truffle and nice to have after diner and also great for “aperitif” (conditioned in little 6g balls).

A special Valentine’s Day version is also avaible only the 14th of February with rose flavors.

Hand-crafted with great quality, the Délice de Pommard has already proved his ability to grow and is already exported in Europe, USA, Canada and even Japan.
