In 1969, Jacques and Jacqueline DELIN (parents of Philippe, the current Chair) created the DELIN cheese dairy

As early as the 1970s, the production of fresh bottled milk and fromage blanc was quickly supplemented by soft cheeses.

In 1980, the activity was increasingly oriented towards the production of cream-enriched cheeses of the fresh and matured Brillat-Savarin types.

From 1990: Philippe Delin took over the cheese dairy. The distribution became more regional (over 80%).

1996: Creation of the Regal de Bourgogne cheese with grapes, an innovative product that is still very popular with customers today.  It is now distributed all over the world.

At the beginning of the 2000s, major investments were made in order to penetrate export markets such as Canada and the USA.

In 2006, Philippe Delin bought the Chevillon cheese factory in Haute-Marne.

In 2014, the new production building was built in the village where the factory had first been founded, at the gateway to Gilly-lès-Cîteaux: 4,000 m² of production area, €8,100,000 of investment.

Since 2017, trade with Canada and the USA has been growing rapidly, and Brillat-Savarin is now shipped in innovative packaging: the individual cheese bell, allowing the cheese to mature during the sea journey.

In 2019, the cheese factory in Montbéliard became part of the group.

2019 also marked the Delin cheese dairy’s 50th anniversary! As part of the anniversary celebrations, the cheese dairy launched a 100% Bourgogne Franche-Comté milk.

In 2020, “Côte d’or le fromage” was launched. Made in Nuits-Saint-Georges with exclusively from milk produced in the Côte-d’Or, it is certified “Savoir-faire 100% Côte d’Or”.

In 2020, the Truffignon, a raclette flavoured with the summer truffle tuber asetivum, was also launched at the Fromagerie de Montbéliard.

Finally, in 2020, the Nuits-Saint-Georges production site received IFS certification.

In 2021, Philippe Delin launched the construction of a new site for the Chevillon cheese makers, tripling their production capacity.

At the beginning of 2022, the first departmental milk in France was created: Côte-d’Or milk. At the end of that same year, Haute-Marne milk was launched.

In 2023, Jura milk, Saône-et-Loire milk and Doubs milk are launched. The UHT milk packaging line is built on the Gilly-lès-Cîteaux site thanks to the EAFRD
