Leading UK Exporter of British Cheese & Dairy Products
Based in the Somerset town of Wellington in the South West of England, Somerdale International Ltd is one of the UK’s leading exporters of cheese and dairy products.
Founded in 1990, we now export to over 50 countries around the world, supplying over 250 cheeses. In recent years we have really focussed on the Australasian market, where demand for British cheese is on the increase.
We represent some of the highest quality cheese producers in Great Britain and our range of products include traditional cheddars, blue cheese, blended and flavoured cheese and traditional, hand-made artisan cheese.
We work very closely with our distributor in Australia, F Mayer Imports, based in Sydney and Melbourne, which has a distribution network across Australia. We consolidate stock and ship regular containers to Sydney and Perth.
We don’t just offer the very best British cheese, but also provide extensive knowledge of how to market and sell the best of British. We have worked with speciality cheese retailers across the world and with a dedicated Somerdale representative in Sydney, we are well placed to use that knowledge to help you promote British brands.
If there is something you are looking for, we can usually source it!
