The Oldways Cheese Coalition (OCC) is an international membership organization of cheesemakers, distributors, retailers, and cheese enthusiasts promoting raw milk and other traditional cheeses. Since 1999, this coalition has advocated for traditional cheeses as safe, delicious, and culturally and historically significant. We work to ensure that traditional cheeses and artisanal cheesemaking practices are maintained for future generations.
