Taureau de Camargue meat and cold cuts
Taureau de Camargue meat, which is red in colour, is very fine, contrary to what you might think, and it contains very little fat. Bull breeding is said to be extensive, with a limited number of animals per hectare. In 1992, five Camargue bull breeders created the Union for the Defence and Promotion of Taureau de Camargue AOC meat. In 1996, they obtained the first AOC appellation for beef in France. In 2008, led by the EU, the AOC changed its name and became AOP (Appellation d’Origine Protégée).
