Ambrosia Custard

The Ambrosia Creamery opened its doors in 1917 in Lifton, Devon with the first product unveiled as dried milk for children. The company’s fortunes were quick to take off as the War Office identified the product’s benefits in providing WW1 soldiers with some nutritious dairy goodness.

The £100 million brand is still based on the same site where it all began more than 100 years ago with founder Alfred Morris. Fast forward to 2018, the headquarters are now a state-of-art £20m facility which uses up to 26 million litres of milk a year and employs more than 320 people. The Morris family eventually sold the company and in 2003 it was acquired by Premier Foods.

Here at Meadow Foods, we’re proud to supply milk and skimmed milk to help contribute to the creamy goodness of their custard and rice.

“They are a good supplier, quite flexible. The quality and service are both pretty good. They also offer small drop sizes. In general, we are open to anything new from Meadow Foods. ”

Paul Corscaden, Premier Foods

The great taste of Tunnock’s

Tunnock’s has been selling great products for more than 125 years. Today, the family-owned business turns over £50 million and exports its famous Caramel Wafer, Snowball and Teacake to more than 32 countries worldwide.

We are very proud to be a part of this success. We supply the business with chocolate crumb and sweetened condensed milk. In fact, every bite of a Tunnock’s product that contains chocolate or caramel features our dairy ingredients.

Every week, the company makes ten million biscuits and cakes, including around 5 million wafers, 3 million tea cakes and 80 tonnes of caramel.

The future looks bright for Tunnock’s with ambitious plans to double its investment in new machinery to £6.3 million. It has also commissioned a fourth manufacturing plant as part of an expansion to its Uddingston site in Scotland.
