South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
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.
