British Cheese On The Global Festive Menu
It's been a record Christmas for Somerdale!
As the last shipments are dispatched from the recently extended cold
store facility located at our HQ in Wellington, Somerset, it's projected that we will have seen a 20%+ increase in the volume of orders
for the Festive season (with the equivalent of over 80,000 turkeys in weight
having been sold in November alone).
The Christmas sales boost includes an order of 50,000 cases
of Westminster Special Edition Cheddar for a major retailer’s Christmas
cheeseboard promotion in the United States; increased exports of Blue Stilton
to over 25 international markets; and strong demand for Festive treats such as
Somerdale’s ever popular Wensleydale & Cranberries.

run-up to Christmas is always an important time of the year for the export of
British cheese and this year in particular has been one to celebrate. British cheeses are increasingly being
recognised for their quality and taste and we have exciting plans for 2017 to
develop the promotion of them further in key markets such as the USA and
Australia together with emerging markets such as the Far East and Gulf regions.
