About Us

Croeso (a warm Welsh welcome) to South Caernarfon Creameries;

Wales’ oldest and largest dairy co-operative which has been farmer-owned since 1938.

Based on the Llyn Peninsula in North West Wales, as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and can be identified on the map as the pointing crooked ‘finger’, South Caernarfon Creameries is at the heart of this community. Our family owned dairy farm co-operative members are located in North Wales, Mid Wales and Ceredigion.

They supply us with exceptional quality milk thanks to their cows that graze on the lush Welsh pastures.

Using the locally sourced Welsh milk, recognised as amongst the very best, together with the skills and knowledge garnered over the generations, allows us to produce exceptional quality Welsh cheese and Welsh butter that have been recognised by major awards including the International Cheese Awards, British Cheese Awards, Global Cheese Awards and World Cheese Awards. We supply our wide range of cheese and butter to the local Welsh market, to major multiples across the UK and to international stores.

We’re proud of our Welsh roots, so much so that we retain our policy to only process Welsh milk, we have dual language on our packaging and have our very own successful brand of cheese and butter called ‘Dragon’

Our farmers work together, have a say in their future and that of the Creamery. As our members, they do not just supply us with milk they also own a share in the company.
