The Commanderie of the Chevaliers du Taste-Laguiole et des Grands Fileurs d'Aligot de l'Aubrac is a confraternity founded in 1997 to promote Laguiole cheese and Aubrac aligot at public events, when its members don outfits similar to the habits worn by the Aubrac monks who invented those local products. The Commander is André Valadier. The commanderie fulfils its role alongside the association and the Jeune Montagne cooperative.
