Who we are

Prima Cheese is a vast growing food production company, built from the foundations of a strong and proud family heritage.

We specialise mainly in Pizza Cheese which is our core business, but have diversified into the supply of other dairy products primarily for the foodservice and food manufacturing markets.

What we do

We're the UK's leading cheese processor, grating, shredding, dicing, slicing and blending specialist pizza cheeses, mozzarella, cheddar and analogues to create the perfect melty cheese products for all your culinary creations. 

How we do it

Our 5 state of the art production lines, decades of experience and an obsession with cheesy goodness means every single batch of Prima cheese melts, cooks and stretches perfectly. Our dedicated QA & QC departments ensure everything that rolls off the production line is tested, checked and tested again to ensure quality and consistency.

We exclusively supply wholesalers and specialist food service retailers to ensure the best restaurants, takeaways and venues receive the best cheese around.
