Debate Over Camembert Normandy Labeling May be Headed to Court
Are consumers confused by the label "Camembert made in Normandy" because it looks like the genuine "Camembert of Normandy" (AOC)? The true AOC producers think so, and the dispute is getting serious. Anna Maria Jakubek at Reuters has the story:
The debate over just whose soft, salty Camembert is the true Normandy cheese may be headed for the courts.
Small producers from the northwestern French region say industrialists are capitalizing on the artisan makers' prized "Camembert of Normandy" label by using the similar "Camembert made in Normandy" phrase to designate their version of the round cow's milk cheese.
