This poultry’s excellence has been officially recognized since 1957 under the registered designation of origin (AOC – Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) and is currently recognized by the European protected designation of origin (AOP – Appellation d’Origine Protégée).
You are in the region between Burgundy, Rhône-Alpes and Franche-Comté. Here, Bresse chickens run like a throng of white marks on the green meadow. In this hedged farmland (bocage), the chickens are raised to produce their signature flavour.
