The award-winning Campbeltown Cheddar Cheese has been introduced to school menus throughout the area by Argyll and Bute Council.


The cheese is made at Campbeltown Creamery and is made from the finest milk from local dairy farmers in Kintyre.


The Council’s Policy Lead for Corporate Services, Councillor Rory Colville said: “By using Campbeltown Cheddar we are not only supporting the local economy, but our children are also getting some of the very best produce available.

"Eight hundred years ago Kintyre  Cheese was recorded as being sent to Edinburgh in due of Crown rentals, as other industries have come and gone the production of Cheese has endured.

"I am delighted that the Council has supported this positive step to help maintain this important agricultural sector and I look forward as more local food producers are included in the future.”
