St-Fidèle Swiss is a firm, interior-ripened, rindless, ivory-coloured, lactose-free cheese with a delicious nutty taste. It is ivory in colour with an almondy taste developed by age and characteristic small "eyes" openings distributed throughout the paste. The cheese is made from 100% Canadian cow's milk sourced from dairy farms in the Charlevoix region.
There are other varieties available in St-Fidèle Swiss such as:

-    Aged St-Fidèle Swiss: aged for six months

-    Port Macerated St-Fidèle Swiss: St-Fidèle Swiss macerated in Port from Baie-St-Paul microbrewery. It has an ivory coloured paste with a purple exterior and a pleasant taste of sweet, red wine.
