Scotland to sell cheese to France

Scotland: Five Scottish artisan cheeses will be shipped to Desailly, one of France’s largest cheese wholesalers, to arrive in time for a three-day launch event on 12th, 13th and 14th September.
This is the first time Scottish cheese will be present in the specialist cheese wholesaler’s range. Desailly deals in many types of cheese and supplies the independent retail and foodservice sectors in France.
The cheeses will be exported by Clarks Speciality Foods of Penicuik, who supply hotels and restaurants with a range of speciality foods, including more than 300 different types of cheese.
This export breakthrough coincides with the Scottish Food & Drink fortnight and has been facilitated by the Scottish Dairy Growth Board working closely with the Scotland Food & Drink in-market specialist.
Susan Beattie, head of food and drink at Scottish Development International, said: “France continues to be a priority under the Scotland Food and Drink Export Plan and this is a tremendous example of our in-market specialist working closely with the Dairy Growth Board to successfully penetrate the French market and open doors to Desailly, the largest cheese wholesaler based in Rungis, Paris.
Allan Currie, MD of Clarks Specialty Foods said: “Desailly supplies top restaurants, cheese mongers and deli’s and is heavily centered in the Paris area, so we’re delighted to give five of our finest independent cheese producers access to this key French buyer.”
