The Oldways Cheese Coalition (OCC) is an international membership organization of cheesemakers, distributors, retailers, and cheese lovers promoting raw milk and other traditional cheeses. Formerly known as the Cheese of Choice Coalition, since 1999, we have 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.
