The first major cheese production investment in the UK for 40 years was officially opened this week by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

They toured the South Caernarfon Creameries’ new cheese production unit at Chwilog, near Pwllheli, Gwynedd, meeting staff of the co-operative which is owned by 127 farmer members in North and Mid Wales.

 

Alan Wyn Jones, SCC’s managing director, said the co-operative was very honoured to have a royal opening of its new facilities.

 

Business

 

“We were able to provide an insight into our co-operative business and 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 the international markets.”

 

Earlier this year its Welsh Slate Cavern Aged Cheddar won the Best Dairy Product 2016 at the Food Management Today Industry Awards.

 

It was developed exclusively for Sainsbury’s in conjunction with the Llechwedd Slate Caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog, and sold nationally throughout the UK under the supermarket’s Taste the Difference brand in retail and deli format.
