Milk-cheese factories, butcheries
It's very easy to find Agour products in France. They are given priority for sale in traditional circuits, meaning cheese shops and butcheries, true ambassadors for the Agour brand. In order to make its products available to the greatest number of consumers possible, Agour also sells them in large shops in south-west France, at the counter or at self-service counters. Over one out of every two cheeses is sold through traditional circuits.
