Artisans use the local breed of pork called ‘Le Franc-Comtois’.
To make the region’s traditional slow-smoked and cured meats, the pigs are raised in the region and fed a natural diet. The meat is slowly smoked in huge 25m tall chimneys called ‘tuyés’, using local pine wood. It is this traditional process which grant our charcuterie its unique flavours. Franche-Comté is famous for its slow-smoked pork sausages (Montbéliard or Morteau), protected by an AOC and label rouge certifications, which guarantee the quality of the meat used as well as the ‘savoir-faire’ of the region’s artisan producers.
