The Art and Science of Cheesemaking

Cheesemaking is both an art and a science. We’re proud to draw on a rich heritage of cheesemaking knowhow combined with state-of-the-art R&D. The sensory profile of our natural cheddar is determined by a number of factors, including maturation, starter cultures and recipe. Our experienced cheese graders ensure the sensory profile is right for each customer, whether they need a mild cheddar with a creamy profile and good sliceability or a more mature cheddar with a savoury profile and a crumbly texture.

Comparison of a Sweet versus Savoury Natural Cheddar

A sweeter cheddar has more sweet and caramel notes and slightly more umami compared to a savoury cheddar, which has more brothy and nutty notes.
