Meadow Foods, the UK’s largest independent dairy and 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 fraîche, sweetened condensed milk and set soured cream. The products will be sold directly to foodservice, wholesale and distributors and will be available in 1kg, 2kg and 5kg containers as individual units or in multi packs.
Meadow Foods will use their Grade A, BRC 6 approved site in Holme on Spalding Moor to 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 the 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 foodservice 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.
