Wales’ oldest dairy donates cheese to FareShare Cymru

South Caernarfon Creameries (SCC) has been supporting FareShare Cymru since October 2021 by providing us with an excellent source of protein for our community group and charity members.  

South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ oldest dairy co-op which has been farmer-owned since 1938. They use only locally sourced milk to produce a range of top-quality award-winning Welsh butter and cheese.  

At SCC we attend numerous trade and consumer shows throughout the year. As part of these activities, we often have a display of products (that are) unable to re-enter the supply chain. FareShare Cymru provides an excellent opportunity for us not to waste these products, whilst also supporting local charities and the community.

FareShare Cymru is incredibly grateful for the support we’ve received from South Caernarfon Creameries. High-quality sources of protein are warmly welcomed by our community groups and charity members, with cheese often being a luxury item. SCC is playing a key part in helping us tackle food waste and fight hunger together. 

The economic climate at the minute is putting many families into food and energy poverty across Wales. This is going to be magnified further with the increase in energy price caps due in April. By donating edible food surplus to FareShare Cymru, you’re not only minimizing the impact on the environment and reducing waste but supporting the most in need in the community.
