    [fre] De nombreuses AOC fromagères ont entrepris de redéfinir leurs conditions de production laitière. L'expérience menée par le Syndicat de Défense de l'Époisses est l'occasion pour les producteurs de lait et les fromagers de construire de nouvelles relations professionnelles autour du métier de chacun. La méthode de travail proposée par l'Institut de l'Élevage aux aoc «de plaine» pour élaborer de nouvelles règles de production, est basée sur une analyse fine par l'éleveur de ses gestes quotidiens dans ce qu'ils ont d'AOC. Les premiers résultats obtenus en matière de liens au terroir participent au renforcement de la typicité du fromage d'AOC, et plus encore à l'ancrage social de la filière dans son environnement proche. Ils permettent en outre d'alimenter la réflexion des autres aoc ayant engagé des démarches similaires. [eng] The Syndicat de Défense de l'Epoisses' has promoted a reflexion, between local cheese makers and milk producers, on the conditions of milk production in the Époisses supply chain. This work contributed to install new, strong and durable relationships between these partners. The method used on the field to elaborate the new rules of production, was proposed by the 'Institut de l'Elevage'. It was mainly based on a precise analysis, conducted by the farmers, of their daily actions to herd the cattle and to produce the milk. The first results help strengthening the typicality of the cheese of Époisses; more over, the integration of the supply chain in its environment, reinforce the social legitimity of the producers of milk and of cheese. Others cheeses, under Protected Designation of Origine, which presently carry on such reflexions, should take advantage of this experience.
