MEADOW FOODS LAUNCHES SOFT CHEESE PRODUCT

Meadow Foods, the UK’s largest independent dairy and leading supplier of milk based dairy ingredients to the food industry, has added soft cheese to the range of dairy products that it offers its food manufacturing customer base.

The new product range, that includes both a full and low fat variety, aims to extend the company’s range and reach and provide its food manufacturing customers with a one stop shop for their dairy ingredients.

The new soft cheese product will be manufactured at the company’s Holme on Spalding Moor site in Yorkshire and will be available in industrial pack sizes of between 5kg and 11kgs. The products will also be available through Meadow Food’s new Food Service business, Green Valley Dairy, where it can be sourced in smaller 1kg and 2kg tubs.

Mark Chantler, managing director of Meadow Food’s Food Ingredients Division comments: “This cultured dairy product is a natural extension to the wide range of dairy ingredients that we currently supply food manufacturers. We’re able to add this product to our portfolio by using our existing manufacturing capabilities and have quickly established an order book through our established customer base.”

In addition to launching soft cheese, Meadow Foods will also be introducing ‘set’ sour cream, crème fraiche and mascarpone in the larger pack formats of between 5kg and 11kgs.

Meadow Foods operates from factories in Chester, Peterborough and Holme-on-Spalding Moor. The company, founded in 1992, now employs more than 275 people and has a turnover in excess of £400m. For more information on Meadow Foods, visit
