History & Provenance
The UK is the birthplace of cheddar cheese and its people have been making it since the 12th century (so you could say the Brits know a thing or two about cheddar making). And when it comes to cheddar, the UK’s favourite by a “country mile” is Cathedral City® Cheddar Cheese. Whether it’s our award-winning recipes, the smooth and creamy taste or the rich milk that goes into making it, we are committed to delivering high quality, great-tasting cheddar every time.
Since its beginnings over 50 years ago, Cathedral City® Cheddar Cheese has been made to a unique, closely-guarded recipe, using only the finest ingredients; the most important of which is high quality, fresh milk.
Sourced from dedicated farms in the counties of Cornwall, Devon and Somerset in the South West of England - considered by many to be “God’s country” for dairy produce - the milk used to make Cathedral City® Cheddar Cheese is 100% British. Its creamy richness and consistent high-quality help give the cheese its distinctive rich flavour.
The South West peninsular of England enjoys both sun and rain in good supply, resulting in a temperate climate that enables some of the UK’s lushest pastures and richest milk fields to flourish; providing the ideal environment for cows to graze.
