Shepherds Purse has won a national contract to supply two of its ewes milk cheeses to Waitrose following trials in 14 Yorkshire stores. It will be supplying Olde York to 60 Waitrose stores.

The profile of the company had been lifted by its unsuccessful fight with Brussels to continue describing one of its ewes milk cheeses as feta, said sales director John Kerwin. Fine Fettle Yorkshire cheese, previously 'Yorkshire Feta', will also be sold on delis in 134 Waitroses.
