500 litres of milk and a good idea is how the story of Käserei Champignon began more than 100 years ago. The cheese-maker Julius Hirschle developed a Camembert with an irresistible new flavour. A year later, he founded Camembert-Industrie-Heising together with the cheese wholesaler Leopold Immler. Because their Camembert had a wonderful aroma of fresh mushrooms, they called it "Champignon Camembert" and foresightedly registered the Champignon logo. The Champignon Camembert brand was born – one of the first consumer brands in the German dairy industry.
