Somerdale International has finalised a deal to export British cheeses to the Philippines
The Somerset-based company will work in partnership with Bacchus Epicerie, the Philippines-based supplier of fine wines and foods to leading restaurants, hotels and specialist retailers.
Bacchus will initially stock cheeses including the award-winning Barber’s 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar, Somerdale’s ‘Il Truffelino’, and Blue Stilton.
Di Jones, of Somerdale International, said: “We are delighted to be supplying our British cheeses to the Philippines for the first time. Although currently a relatively small market there is a growing demand for fine foods and wines in the Philippines and we believe that our great tasting and distinctive cheeses will be popular especially with upmarket restaurants and hotels.
“Looking ahead, we see Southeast Asia as being an important emerging market for our products and we will continue to develop relationships with key distributors in the region.”
The launch was marked by a cheese and wine tasting event at the official residence of the British Ambassador in Manila which was attended by more than 100 guests.
