Welsh cheese company, Carmarthenshire Cheese, have begun exporting to Canada.
Working through the Queens Export Award cheese exporter, Coombe Castle International, Carmarthenshire Cheese have already shipped out the first of its highly regarded Boksburg Blue and Boksburg Gold cheeses to the Tree of Life organization in Toronto and Calgary.
“This is a really great result for us and something we have been working towards for a few years. Working in partnership with Coombe Castle International makes perfect sense for a small business like ours, enabling us to easily ship to distant markets like the US, Japan and now Canada,” said Steve & Sian Elin Peace, owners of the Carmarthenshire Cheese Company.
Boksburg Blue and Boksburg Gold are manufactured at the Carmarthenshire Creamery’s new site in Llanllwch. Both cheeses are mould ripened and are extremely popular with lovers of blue cheeses. They are widely stocked throughout Wales and are also sold direct from the Creamery shop.
Coombe Castle International is well known for sourcing quality cheeses and introducing these to potential customers worldwide. Peter Mitchell, Operations Director of the Wiltshire based Coombe Castle International commented;
“The quality of cheese produced by Steve’s team is first class, and combined with the authenticity and provenance offered by these Welsh cheeses we look forward to developing the business with Carmarthenshire Cheese in 2017, not only in Canada, but in many of the other markets we service around the world.”
