South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
There’s been a raft of staff milestones – retirements and promotions
to celebrate at South Caernarfon Creameries including some very special
long-service awards. The farmer co-operative is indebted to their loyal
staff, many of whom have enjoyed long periods of service.
After 33 years at the Creamery, South Caernarfon Creameries is sad to
be saying goodbye to Cheese Grader Dic Mann. An invaluable member of
the team, Dic has monitored and graded our cheese with care over the
years to ensure that South Caernarfon’s Welsh cheese is consistently of
the best quality. Dic’s skills as a Cheese Grader have been recognised
far beyond the Creamery and has been invited to judge at many cheese
events including the prestigious International Cheese Awards. Dic will
be missed, but we now look forward to work with Iwan Lloyd his
predecessor. Iwan has worked with Dic for the last year so has the best
skills to be and excellent cheese grader in the future.
As for promotions, another longstanding employee Elwyn Jones has now
been appointed Factory Manager. Elwyn has worked for the Creamery since
1986 and has progressed from temporary dairy hand to management over
the years also undertaking Company Secretary and Human Resources roles.
Other members of staff are also celebrating a long career at the
Creamery are Gareth Owen (Engineering Supervsior) and Peredur Williams
(Farm Liaison Manager) both marking 20 years’ service.
