Dairy Crest

Fine Food & Drink

Dairy Crest is the leading British-owned dairy company. As well as making market leading brands such as Country Life, Clover, Davidstow Cheddar, Cathedral City and FRijj, we are one of the UK's largest purchasers of fresh milk. We source our milk directly from around 1,250 British dairy farmers, mainly in the South West of England and South Wales.

We play a full part in these rural communities through a number of activities, including The Prince's Rural Action Programme, the Prince's Countryside Fund, Business in the Community and charity partnerships like Pub is the Hub. For recognition of this work, we have recently been one of only five companies to be shortlisted as Business in the Community's Company of the Year 2013.

Dairy Crest is proud of our links to the British countryside and our dairy heritage which is why we are delighted to be involved with the Buckingham Palace Coronation Festival 2013 and to help celebrate the Best of British. Last year, to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee our creamery at Davidstow launched Davidstow Diamond Jubilee Limited Edition Cornish Cheddar. In royal terms, the Cheddar was extra special as HRH Prince Charles added the all important starter culture when he visited the creamery to open our biomass boilers. The Cheddar was sold in M&S and Waitrose with all of the money raised donated to The Prince's Countryside Fund. The product raised £76,530 for the charity.

This year, our master cheese grader, Mark Pitts-Tucker, will be at the Coronation Festival to demonstrate what it takes to ensure our Davidstow and Cathedral City cheeses keep on winning prizes for their taste and quality.
