HISTORY OF COCHON555
Created in 2008 in response to the lack of education around heritage breed pigs, COCHON555 is a nose-to-tail competition dedicated to supporting family farmers and educating chefs and diners about the agricultural importance of utilizing Old World livestock. Competition organizers work with every type of restaurant and bar imaginable – Mom-and-Pop, farm-to-table, BBQ, Michelin star – participating chefs all share one core value: they source products responsibly.
