The supplier has also launched a festive selection box containing five of its cheese varieties

Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses has acquired the Parlick brand from cheesemaker Singletons, which ceased trading last month.

The acquisition brings sheep’s milk cheese into the company’s portfolio.

It also supported a key part of the local supply chain and ensured no break in supply to Sainsbury’s, Morrison’s and Waitrose, Butlers said.

“Bringing Parlick to Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses puts sheep’s milk cheese back into our range and supports a key part of the local Lancashire supply chain after Singletons very sadly cease trading,” said Matthew Hall, fourth generation owner at Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses.

”It’s really important to us that we keep the British cheese renaissance going and Parlick will be part of that.”

It comes as Butlers launched a new Christmas Cheese Selection Box into Waitrose on 1 November and in its online cheese store.

The selection box (rsp: £15) contains five cheese varieties: Blacksticks Blue, Firecracker Red Leicester, Goosnargh Gold, This is Proper Goat’s Cheese and This is Proper Cheddar.
