Gwynedd Council Visit

It was a pleasure to welcome a delegation from Gwynedd Council on site on 9th May. Members and officers visited the co-operative as part of the council’s business week activities that was arranged to promote and highlight successful businesses within their catchment area.

This was the first time members of Gwynedd Council visited SCC since we’ve extended our facilities and installed a new multi-million pound cheese production and packing facility. Six members visited that included Elfed Powell Roberts, Annwen Hughes, Annwen Daniels, Gareth Anthony Roberts, Selwyn Griffiths, Anwen J Davies and Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Ioan Thomas. They were accompanied by Sioned Williams Head of Economy and Community Services, Colin Morris, Business Support Manager and Gwenda Roberts, Senior Assets Officer.

The group met with Managing Director, Alan Wyn-Jones and Elwyn Jones, Company Secretary, HR & Compliance Manager. They had a full tour of the creamery including the new facility and also had the opportunity to taste and grade a wide selection of cheeses.

Gwynedd Council Cabinet member for Economic Development, Councillor Ioan Thomas observed: “As part of this year’s Gwynedd Business Week, we have been delighted to visit a number of high profile companies within the county. The visit to South Caernarfon Creameries was a chance to highlight the important employment opportunities it provides in the Dwyfor area, and to learn more about their plans for development. We are grateful to the company for taking the time to share their experiences which allowed us to gain a better understanding of the importance of private investment for the local economy.”
