Cheddar Cheese
Typically firm in texture, Cheddar is the most popular cheese in the UK and accounts for over half of all cheese sales annually. With the cheese industry worth an estimated £1.9 billion, that’s a lot of cheddar!


Sliced Cheese
Sliced cheese was invented by American James Kraft (of Kraft Cheese fame) and first came onto the market in 1950. Because sliced cheese is processed, it has a number of benefits including a long shelf life and ability to melt without changing taste, texture or separating. This makes it popular for fast food like burgers and hot dogs.


Pizza Cheese
The classic Italian cheese for pizza. Mozzarella was first made in the South of Italy, around Naples and records date it’s production as far back as the 12th century. Traditionally, it was made using buffalo milk, hence it’s full name Buffalo Mozzarella but these days most large scale Mozzarella manufacturers use cow’s milk.


Other Products
As well as cheese, we stock a range of products for the catering trade including dairy products yoghurt and milk and non-dairy products including cold drinks and dairy alternatives. Contact us for a full list.
