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.
