Coastal Cheddar is matured at the Ford Farm Dairy located on the world heritage Jurassic Coast line in the salty sea air.
Coastal has been developed to appeal to the consumer demand for rich, rugged and mature cheddars. Aged for a minimum of fifteen months, Coastal is often characterised with a distinctive crunch – a result of the calcium lactate crystals which form naturally in the cheese as it matures.
Coastal was first launched in 2000. It is widely available in the UK but has really stolen the show across the Atlantic in North America.
We have been told that Coastal is now the biggest selling branded Cheddar in the USA and it has undoubtedly helped us win the highly prestigious and competitive Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Export category on two separate occasions.
