More Cornish milk to be made into 'great tasting cheese'

15 April 2011

Milk Link has announced work has begun on the first phase of a new production facility at its Cornish Country Larder Trevarrian Creamery in North Cornwall

The major £4 million investment will substantially increase production of the Trevarrian Creamery’s award winning soft cheeses to meet a growing demand from major retailers and foodservice providers nationwide.

Cornish Country Larder, a leading producer of British speciality soft cheeses was acquired by the UK’s largest dairy co-operative Milk Link in January this year, as part of a deal to strengthen its position as the foremost producer of British cheeses.

The new development at Trevarrian will result in increased production and maturation capacity for the Creamery’s comprehensive range of soft cheeses including Cornish Brie, Camembert and brands such as Gevrik soft goats cheese and St Endellion (a delicious luxury Cornish Brie, made using Cornish double cream).

It will feature ‘best in class’ processing technology to improve product quality and consistency whilst retaining all the authentic quality and taste of the cheeses for which Cornish Country Larder is famous.

The first phase of the Trevarrian development will be completed by the Autumn of 2011.

Milk Link’s Chief Executive, Neil Kennedy said, “Our new investment at Trevarrian is an important step forward in the growth and development of Cornish Country Larder. It reflects the positive reaction received from customers and consumers alike to the great tasting cheeses produced at the creamery and is an integral part of Milk Link’s ambitious expansion plans for the business.”
