A seal of true quality

AOP, or “Appellation d’Origine Protégée” is a globally recognized and certified guarantee of origin, protected by Swiss law. An indication of a controlled designation of origin, only a handful of premium food products around the world carry the AOP label.

More than a simple quality seal, AOP helps preserve the livelihood of artisan food producers by ensuring that only these authentic specialty food products — sometimes unique to one location in the world — carry the AOP label. AOP not only helps to safeguard heritage recipes and techniques, but protects the legacy of specialty producers for generations to come.

If you’re looking for a guarantee of quality, just look for the AOP label.
