The company supplies through the London Cheese Board, specialist dairy supplier to all sectors of the foodservice industry bringing the finest foods to the finest tables.



Philip Corrick, executive chef for the Royal Automobile Club and Roger Evans, head chef with the IoD will visit the Thirsk based cheese maker this month to taste some of its latest innovations and tour the dairy. RAC, a private members club steeped in more than 100 years of history and tradition as a social and automobile club, uses Buffalo Blue, made with water buffalo milk and Mrs Bells Blue, made with ewe's milk on the cheeseboard at its fine dining restaurants housed in clubhouses in London's Pall Mall and Epsom.



The IoD, Europe's largest membership organisation for business leaders since its Royal charter in 1906, offers Shepherds Purse blue cheeses on the cheeseboard at Carlton, its London restaurant /brasserie. It boasts 45,000 members through 44 regional branches across the UK and an international network that covers six continents.



Katie Bell, sales and marketing director, Shepherds Purse Cheeses said: "We are delighted to work with the London Cheese Board to bring our premier cheese to the finest tables in the country. It's a privilege to supply such well respected private members clubs and we hope our traditionally handcrafted cheeses will be well received by members of both organisations. We look forward to welcoming the executive chefs to our family dairy to see first hand how we make our award-winning cheeses and introduce them to our latest innovations."



Rupert Holloway, the London Cheese Board said: "We have been supplying Shepherds Purse cheeses for the last couple of years to the food industry. Their commitment to produce high quality and exclusive cheeses enables the London Cheese Board to introduce great British cheeses to the London market and our customers, such as the Royal Automobile Club and the IoD. We look forward to introducing new Shepherds Purse cheeses to our customers in the future."
