Bristol-based farm and cheesemaker, Lye Cross Farm, has secured additional business in the US which is estimated to generate more than £1.5m in turnover within the next 12 months. The deal will see the company ship its certified 100% Grass-fed Organic Sharp Cheddar Cheese to the country.
Initially launching in 30 grocery stores in California, the company expects to see its cheese in up to 1,000 stores by the end of 2019. This has the potential to double Lye Cross Farm’s business in the US.
The cheese has been made specifically for the US market after the business discovered that US buyers prefer creamier cheeses with a more distinct yellow colouring.
