At the beginning of the 20th century the making of the cheese gradually shifted from the farms to the village dairies, and by 1950 the annual production had increased to 27,000 kg.

The founding of the cheese trade organisation in the seventies and the invention of the «Girolle®» in 1981 (by Nicolas Crevoisier) marked another turning point in the history of Tête de Moine AOP, with 1'560 tons produced in 1999.
