UK dairy co-operative Milk Link has commenced work on the first phase of a new production facility at its Cornish Country Larder Trevarrian Creamery in North Cornwall. The £4m investment will substantially increase production of the Trevarrian Creamery’s award-winning soft cheeses to meet a growing demand from major retailers and food service providers nationwide.

Cornish Country Larder, a leading producer of British speciality soft cheeses, was acquired by 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 goat’s cheese and St Endellion (a 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.
