Royal Visit

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will officially open South Caernarfon Creameries’ new cheese production unit on Tuesday 5th July.

Their Royal Highnesses will tour the Creameries’ site, meet with staff and members of the dairy co-operative which is owned by 127 farmers who farm in North Wales and Mid Wales. The visit to South Caernarfon’s Chwilog site near Pwllheli is part of The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s twelfth annual Summer visit to Wales.

Alan Wyn Jones, Managing Director at South Caernarfon Creameries said “We are very honoured that The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will officially open our new cheese facility, which is the first major cheese production investment in the UK for 40 years.

“We are looking forward to showing Their Royal Highnesses our new facilities and to provide an insight into our co-operative business, for example, how our member farmers supply high quality Welsh milk which is processed into quality, award-winning Welsh cheese and Welsh butter which we sell to UK retailers and to international markets.”

The Prince of Wales has a longstanding commitment to supporting Britain’s agriculture and ensuring its sustainable future. In 2010, HRH founded The Prince’s Countryside Fund, which aims to create a brighter future for the British countryside.
