Ossau Iraty PDO
by Onetik. Product of Macaye, France.
Small village of Macaye is located at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains, right in the heart of Basque Country - center of the milk collection area for Ossau-Iraty. Onetik process milk from around 250 farms, to produce an authentic and succulent cheese using ancestral techniques and traditional know-how at our state-of-the-art facility.
The wheels are aged in the cellars (haloirs) where they develop unique aromas and yeasts found only in the facility… one of Onetik’s little secrets.

All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices.
