Taw Valley Creamery Visits on 9th and 30th March 2016

Taw Valley Creamery visit

This event was a rare occurrence for the Dartmoor Society where the cheese factory at North Tawton very graciously assisted us by kindly arranging two separate dates for two simply fascinating tours in order to accommodate everyone who expressed a wish to attend this interesting local dairy producing company.

The Taw Valley Creamery are part of a farm co-operative known as Arla which makes them a contributor to the UK’s largest milk producing pool with a turnover of £2.2 billion. Their product range includes cheese, whey, cream, butter, whey permia concentrate (WPC) and milk powder.

After an informative formal presentation, a full tour of the production facilities, a comprehensive cheese tasting, as well as a visit to the factory shop, everyone agreed it had been a truly wonderful event.
