South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
M&S Cheese Deal
South Caernarfon Creameries has secured a deal to supply Welsh cheddar to Marks and Spencer.
The retailer is now stocking Dragon brand Vintage Welsh Cheddar and Mature Welsh Cheddar in 24 of their stores across Wales. The cheeses are made using 100% Welsh milk from dairy herds supplied by the co-operative’s 130 member farms across North and mid Wales. It will put local produce made and packaged at South Caernarfon Creameries’ base in Chwilog on the Llŷn Peninsula, on the tables of thousands more customers.
Alan Wyn Jones, Managing Director said, “We are delighted M&S has asked us to supply our Welsh cheddars for their stores across Wales. M&S is a high street retail institution and we are delighted to be part of their drive to put more local produce on their food shelves. It’s a major boost to our farmers and the wider community to know that milk from our Welsh cows is on the shelves of such a prestigious UK retailer. These are exciting times for South Caernarfon Creameries as we continue to expand into new markets with an increased product range, taking Welsh produce to even more customers.”
Linda Lewis Williams, New Product Development Manager at SCC said: “We have an amazing range of products and it is really exciting that M&S have decided to stock the Dragon brand Welsh cheddars on their local produce shelves. It is testament to the quality of the produce and the skill of our farmers and staff, we hope to be able to announce more exciting news in the coming months.”
