Cheddar Cheese

Cheddar Cheese

This popular cheese originated in the village of Cheddar in the Somerset region of England.

It's a firm, cow's milk cheese that ranges in flavour from mild to sharp, and in colour from natural white to pumpkin orange.

The cheese curd is formed when the milk coagulates with rennet. The curd is then cut and cheddared (salted and milled). The salted and milled curd grains are then formed into blocks of cheese.

We offer efficient cheese production systems for milk coagulation, cheddaring and block forming to help you produce the Cheddar cheese you want.
