The Ottavi Cheese Company is located in the Corsican “Fium’Orbu Valley”. It was founded in 1948 by the members of an old traditional pastoral family who were breeders-cheese makers.

In the beginning they had a small home where they farmed sheep and goats and produced cheese in a small scale, although every year they took care of sheep and goat milk from the shepherds in the surroundings in addition to their own production.

Since 1958, the growing market of traditional cheeses led Ottavi to give up sheep and goat farming and specialize their activity in cheese processing. The seventies were a transitional period and confirmed this orientation was successful.

In 1989, the firm became a Company, managed by Charles-Pierre & Vincent -Charles Ottavi, the founder and his son.
The Company is fully equipped in accordance with European hygienic and sanitary regulations. The processes keep artisanal to preserve the authenticity and specificity of their products.
The main objective for the company has always been to maintain traditional processes and to secure a sustainable and viable marketing of their cheeses with local customers and French continental and foreign operators.
Today, the Ottavi Cheese Company is rewarded by a strong presence on the local markets and a loyal clientele. The awards their cheeses have got in the General Cheese Competition during the Paris International Agricultural attest the quality and know-how of the Ottavi Cheese company.
