Waitrose is to stock the latest offering from the company that introduced the nettle-covered Cornish Yarg cheese.
Lyhner Dairies Cheese Company is introducing a Wild Garlic Yarg exclusively to the retailer in September.
The company experimented with leaf alternatives and found wild garlic leaves lended themselves well to covering its hand-made cheese.
Catherine Mead, Lyhner Dairies director, said: "We use milk from our own herds and the garlic leaves are hand-picked by local people in the woodland around our farm."
The leaves are gathered throughout April and May and frozen for up to 18 months.

n lubborn boosted
A new £6m creamery was opened this week by Prince Charles. The facility at Lubborn Cheese in Somerset, is owned by leading co-operative Dairy Farmers of Britain.
MD James Farnham said: "We are committed to producing authentic products, using traditional methods.
"The investment in the new creamery has provided us with the facilities to make artisan cheeses of superb quality and consistency." Lubborn produces Somerset Brie, Somerset Camembert and Capricorn Goats Cheese.

n cream served
Sainsbury has reported bumper sales of cream in all stores during Wimbledon fortnight.
The retailer shifted a massive 110,000 litres of double cream in the first week alone and were aiming to hit a target of 250,000 litres for the fortnight.
Martin Phippen, cream buyer, said: "Cream is pouring out of our stores and our team is working overtime to cope with huge demand."

n tuna confusion
"Total confusion" was how one UK tuna importer described the recent attempts by the EC to introduce a two-tier duty arrangement for non-preferential supplies, such as Thailand and the Philippines.
A quota of 25,000 tonnes equal to about 5% of the EU annual imports has been allocated for a 50% duty cut. As a result, importers have been holding recent arrivals in bond to qualify for the duty saving which comes into effect on July 1.
Raw material prices have risen sharply due to poor fishing and some producers have cut back production dramatically. Meanwhile sales have been booming.
So far, prices have been unchanged, but if raw material prices continue the upward trend, there will be increases.

n butter ceiling
A little publicised aspect of CAP reform is the decision to place a ceiling on the volume of butter intervened each year.
This measure is on top of the 25% cut in butter intervention prices over the next four years.
At present any eligible butter anywhere in the EU can be offered into intervention stores throughout the year at a guaranteed buying in price.
The volume of butter to be accepted will now be limited each year in 2004 to 70,000 tonnes, dropping by 10,000 tonnes each year until it reaches 30,000 in 2008. This compares with 160,000 tonnes intervened in 2002.
