Best of British!


At the heart of our portfolio of fine cheeses is our selection of British cheeses. There are no finer cheeses than Stilton and Cheddar, but in recent years there has been such a revival in cheesemaking in Britain that we are able to offer a wide selection of hard, soft, blue, cow’s milk, goat or sheep’s milk cheeses from small farms in the South and further afield.

From the colourful, like Sage Derby, to the quirky – Cornish Yarg with its coating of real nettles – to the ultra traditional farmhouse cheddars and deeply flavoured stiltons, and cute little Perl Wen cheeses from Wales, we are proud of our country and its wonderful range of cheeses.


Sage Derby

Henson Foods stocks an extensive range of cheeses for table and cooking, chosen especially for our customers in the premium casual dining sector. Call us to find out which cheeses are on our specials board, and which of our artisan cheeses from small producers are coming to the point of perfection this week.
