South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
British Food Fortnight
British Food Fortnight is held each autumn to champion and celebrate British food and drink.
We think it’s an important celebration and highlights the importance
of buying British which offers a wealth of high quality foods produced
right on your doorstep.
So why do we think you should buy British dairy?
Our farmers adhere to amongst the highest welfare standards in the world
Choosing British (or indeed Welsh) dairy products means that you are
directly supporting British farmers which in turn has a positive impact
on the British countryside
You are directly supporting the economy – from the farmer to
businesses who are involved with food processing, right through to the
shops selling the food.
Locally produced food travels far less, so it has an obvious benefit to the environment with a much lower carbon footprint.
Our family owned farm co-operative members are from North Wales and
Mid Wales. Their dairy farms supply us with exceptional quality milk
thanks to their cows that graze on the lush Welsh pastures.
For us, provenance is a fundamental part of our business; we’re proud
of our Welsh roots, have a policy to only process Welsh milk and have
our very own successful brand of cheese and butter called Dragon
Our dairy range encompasses traditional Cheddars, from mild to vintage
as well as taking inspiration from our Welsh roots with a mature cheddar
with leek. Then there is Caerphilly, traditional territorials and
salted Welsh butter – something for everyone!
We think it’s important to buy British dairy all year round, and British Food Fortnight is an important celebration – 17 September 2016 – 2 October 2016.
