The Wensleydale Creamery takes a taste of Yorkshire to Food & Drink Expo
Food & Drink Expo provides the number one route to the UK food & drink market, attracting buyers and decision makers from across the whole [food & drink] industry. Held at the NEC in Birmingham, the 2018 show is expecting 1500 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors over the three days, 16th – 18th April.
The Wensleydale Creamery, the famous cheese-maker set in the picturesque town of Hawes, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, is exhibiting at Food & Drink Expo again this year.
The Creamery is famous for its award-winning Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese, which has European Protected Food Name status in the form of PGI, as well as its original creation, Yorkshire Wensleydale & Cranberries cheese; a cheese so popular it has been copied by manufacturers across the UK and beyond since its origination over 20 years ago.
In the last three years, The Wensleydale Creamery has entered the wider dairy category, with the launch of Yorkshire Yogurt, Yorkshire Butter, and the soon-to-launch Yorkshire Brie, and has invested heavily in its new dairy and cheese slicing & cutting technology, to support The Creamery’s ambitious growth plans.
Sandra Bell, Marketing Manager, said: “Food Expo is a fantastic platform for us to showcase our range of handcrafted cheeses, butter and yogurt to buyers, manufacturers, wholesalers, and speciality retail; we’ve got some exciting things in the pipeline.
“In addition to our product display, we’ll have a fridge full of products & dishes made with our cheese, to inspire and delight visitors – we’re bringing a taste of Yorkshire to the NEC. Yorkshire Wensleydale, and the rest of our range, is so much more than just a cheeseboard cheese!”
The Wensleydale Creamery will be on stand M211 at Food Expo, sampling its product range, as well as some delicious foods that have been made using its cheeses.
