Some information about Carmarthenshire Cheese:
Carmarthenshire Cheese Company Ltd (Cwmni Caws Caerfyrddin Cyf) was founded in 2006 by co-owners Steve and Sian Elin Peace. After returning to Sian’s rural roots, and with some half century of senior dairy industry experience between them, the couple channeled their considerable enthusiasm and passion for cheese into creating a state of the art manufacturing facility, nestled in the heart of milk producing West Wales.
The original business model came from market research identifying the gap in the market, but a commitment existed from the outset to form a credible artisan cheese business which today sits as the leading artisan producer in Wales, able to supply major multiples as well as specialist shops and wholesalers. With significant experience and technology already behind them, the couple committed significant cash from their own resources and leased two advanced food units at Food Centre Wales, Horeb. Three weeks after taking the keys, cheesemaking began with the first sales just reaching the Easter market in 2006.
