Véronique and Léo are an amazing mother-son duo!
Native of the Jura, they raised goats before moving to Belgium. Véronique specialises in herbal medicine. Léo has always had his hands in cheese. On the farm, he made cheese with his sister throughout his childhood.
After having moved, the passion for cheese remained! He started working in Paris while Véronique was elected First Cheese maker of Belgium in 2016, which is similar to the Best Craftsman of France (MOF)!
In July 2017, they decide to join forces and launch "La Fruitière" together, a polymorphous place dedicated to cheese. Right in the centre of Brussels, you can find a cheese shop coupled with a magnificent cheese bar where sourced and matured dairy products are king! It is a place of exchange, hospitality and encounter where everyone can take a break and enjoy cheese.
Visit them and admire their four maturing cellars visible from the street! Epicureans and enthusiasts, they will welcome you with enthusiasm to share their passion for fine cheeses.
