Supermarkets in England to Sell Stranraer Cheese

CHEESE from The Caledonian Creamery in Stranraer will soon be on sale at 125 Netto discount supermarkets in England.

Glasgow-based cheese producer A. McLelland and Son have won a £6 million contract to supply 200 tonnes of own-brand cheddar a month to the company under the Netto- brand name of Elmsall Farm Mild and Elmsall Farm Mature Cheddar.

Produced in Stranraer, the order will help to secure the 100 existing jobs as well as increase demand for milk from dairy farmers in the South-West.

A. McLelland and Son currently supply many brand cheddars to Netto, including their Seriously Strong, the most popular brand cheddar in the country, which is also produced in Stranraer.

The company, who have seen their turn-over grow from £28 million in 1995, to£120 million this year, describe the own-brand deal as a major coup.

Alastair Irvine joint managing director, said

"This is a significant win for the company and represents a major opportunity for us".
