Meadow Foods, the UK’s largest independent dairy and leading supplier of quality milk based dairy ingredients to the food industry, is launching a range of products targeted at wholesalers, caterers and restaurant businesses. The new business will trade under the name of Green Valley Dairy.
Green Valley Dairy will provide a range of dairy products including; full and low fat soft cheese, mascarpone, crème fraiche and, set soured cream as well as Sweetened Condensed Milk. The products will be sold directly to food service, wholesale and distributors and will be available in 1kg, 2kg and 5kg containers as individual units or in multi packs.
Meadow Foods has invested in new manufacturing capabilities at their Grade A, BRC approved site in Holme on Spalding Moor where they will manufacture the premium quality dairy products in order to be competitively priced. The product will be distributed via its established UK wide chilled distribution network.
Mark Chantler, Managing Director of Meadow Foods’ ingredients business, comments: “This is a logical progression for the business as it opens new markets and opportunities for our quality dairy products. We intend to run Green Valley Dairy as an independent brand to Meadow Foods, whilst still using our business’ proven experience and expertise in the dairy sector.”
“We’ve already seen some positive interest and orders for the product from wholesalers and end users alike. We’re excited by the opportunity that Green Valley Dairy presents in capturing the premium yet affordable end of the food service marketplace.”
Meadow Foods operates from factories in Chester, Peterborough and Holme-on-Spalding Moor. The company, founded in 1992, now employs more than 275 people and has a turnover in excess of £400m. For more information on Green Valley Dairy, visit www.greenvalleydairy.co.uk
