1912 STILTON® STORY
There’s a rich story behind every bite of our artisan Stilton®, perfected by over 100 years expertise of our master cheesemakers since our formation as a farmer owned cooperative in 1912. To this day we have over 30 member farms, all situated less than 30 miles from the dairy.
Our farmers care strongly about quality, which means they uphold the highest animal welfare and land standards, not only are they all Red Tractor assured, but also adhere to our own additional Care 365 programme – after all, excellent artisan Stilton® starts with great quality milk.
They also care about the surrounding ecosystems and community projects and are committed to multiple sustainability initiatives to reduce their impact on the planet, such as tree-planting and hedgerow management to promote wildlife biodiversity and carbon reduction projects.
