working with co-operatives

Working with co-operatives near and far

The Co-operative works with many other co-operatives in the UK and abroad, supporting producers by selling their quality produce in our stores. From our support to form co-operatives for Kenyan tea farmers to achieve Fairtrade certification to our locally sourced award winning cheese. Each co-operative we work with has its own unique story, origins and production methods.

The Taw Valley Creamery Story

Situated in the heart of the Devon countryside, the Taw Valley Creamery has been producing award-winning cheese since 1974. Surrounded by lush green grass and rolling hills, the milk that goes into the creamery is collected from more than 700 dairy farms, many of which are located within a 30-mile radius.

Glorious pastures, fresh local ingredients and a wealth of cheese making experience come together to create our stunning range of Cheddars, Red Leicester and Double Gloucester.
