South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
We welcomed Manhum Toru to SCC last on a month long work experience schedule to aid with her family’s cheese project in Pakistan. Manhum graduated from Middlsex Univeristy with a BBA in Tourism and Hospitality Management.
She continued with further education and achieved a
postgraduate in Culinary Management from the UAE. After pursuing a
career in hospitality, she has now joined the family cheese and dairy
business in Pakistan.
The family company, “The cheese and dairy factory” is a small local
business set on the outskirts of Islamabad, established in 2005 as a
dairy factory. Over time they have ventured into cheese and produce
cheese products called “La vista”. The company’s flagship product is
Italian mozzarella distributed predominantly to pizza parlours and other
fast food joints, as well as mild cheddar. Their products is
celebrated in domestic markets, but the demand for artisan or flavoured
cheddar is dynamically increasing.
Entering a completely different segment in the Food Industry, Manhum
thought it beneficial to have experience in the field, and so here she
is with us at SCC. Manhum commented “so far it has been such an
intellectually invigorating pleasure! I have been very fortunate to have
been mentored by individuals who possess a copious amount of knowledge
and understanding regarding this sector, and other mediating factors
associated with this Industry”.
In the future Manhum hopes to integrate what she has learnt, in her
words, “from the connoisseurs in this creamery” and provide a niche for a
country that is still yet to explore the artisanal flavours of cheese.
