The new facility will cut and pack traditional crumbly and farmhouse cheeses, such as Stilton, Cheshire, Red Leicester and other territorials, from a range of small-scale producers.
Cheese is delivered in a variety of forms such as rounds wrapped in cheesecloth or in wooden boxes and are unpacked. They are then cut using specialist equipment, packed and distributed to Waitrose and other customers.
"Not only are we securing and creating jobs at our Reece's Creamery, we are also meeting our customers' needs," said director of speciality cheese Mark Frankcom.
The opening follows the completion of Milk Link's new Innovation Centre at Taw Valley as the company looks to add value to its product portfolio.
