About Alouette


The Alouette story begins in the early ‘70s when the renowned French cheese maker Jean-Noel Bongrain decided it was time to bring his passion and skill for French specialty cheese to the States.


Choosing the rolling hills of Lancaster, Pennsylvania as his new American home, the company embarked on creating a new line of original, specialty cheeses – one that would combine traditional French recipes with flavors suited to the US.


In 1974, Alouette Spreadable Cheese was born. Thanks to its soft, velvety texture and unique blend of fresh flavors – two features that would come to define the brand – it was an instant success.


The rest, as they say, is history.
