South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
South Caernarfon Creameries offers a wide selection of premium Welsh
Cheese in a variety of pack formats, together with a selection of
British territorial cheese. The cheese range offers customers a superb
choice of profiles from Mild Cheddar to a full-bodied Vintage Special
Reserve Cheddar. Our comprehensive range of flavours and formats is
designed to suit the Retailers, Wholesalers, Food Service, Food
Manufacturers and the Export market.
Our Welsh Cheddar Cheese varies from, creamy mild Cheddar, to a more
mature Medium Cheddar through to our very tasty, Mature Cheddar and
Extra Mature Cheddar. The cheeses are carefully matured for anything up
to 18 months. As a Welsh farmer dairy co-operative, our Welsh Caerphilly
is made to a traditional recipe to produce an authentic cheese with all
the provenance of our area. Caerphilly is a traditional Welsh cheese,
made in Wales using Welsh milk.
Cheese making at South Caernarfon Creameries has retained traditional
production methods, still salting by hand on open tables. This allows
the flexibility to make a range of cheeses which would not be possible
using the fully automated equipment found in many modern creameries
around the world.
Cheese needs time to mature in order to develop the distinctive
flavours and textures. Our highly experienced Cheese Graders are on site
constantly monitoring and grading our cheese. Their expertise is second
to none, so much so that they are regularly invited to judge at
International Cheese Awards.
South Caernarfon Creameries’ produces award-winning cheese. A whole
host of cheese has been recognised and scooped top awards at the British
Cheese Awards, World Cheese Awards, International Cheese Awards and
Global Cheese Awards and many others.

Our Cheese Range
There is a choice of pack sizes: 100g, 180g, 200g, 350g, 500g, and 750g
Our pre-pack range includes traditional white or coloured Cheddars
from mild, medium, mature and vintage as well as territorial cheese such
as Red Leicester, Double Gloucester. There’s ‘Lighter’ Cheddar which is
lower in fat, Monterey Jack that is ideal for cooking a delicious
Vintage Cheddar with Leeks. The range would not be complete without our
signature Welsh Caerphilly!
Grated Cheese is available as part of our convenience range. At present, only Cheddars are available in the grated format, but there is a mild, medium, mature and lighter option to choose from. To avoid wastage, the grated cheese is packed into handy 220g self-seal bags (200g for Lighter Cheddar) so that it can be resealed and be reserved for later.
In response to consumer demand, we developed a convenience range of sliced cheese. 200g packs of Mild, medium, mature and a 180g pack of Lighter Cheddar options is available. Perfect to create a quick cheese sandwich, pop under the grill for a toastie or place atop a burger!
As well as the convenient retail ranges, South Caernarfon Creameries
also have a range dedicated to delicatessen and serve-over counters.
