West Cork Dairy Brand Launches Cheesecakes Into Sainsbury's Stores

Glenilen Farm which is run by husband and wife team, Alan and Valerie Kingston has announced that it has launched its chilled cheesecake range into Sainsbury's stores.

The West Cork dairy brand's new range which consists of handmade cheesecakes in two flavours - Lemon and Mango & Passionfruit will be available from 170 Sainsbury's stores throughout the UK from today.

The dessert which is made with crunchy biscuit base, set with Irish butter and topped with a combination of fromage frais, is presented in a tub made from recycled bottles with a push-up base to ensure 'easy and mess-free' removal.

Alan Kingston, owner of Glenilen Farm highlighted that the groups glass jar yoghurt range, which is currently available from the UK retailers stores has seen sales grow by 50% in Sainsbury’s year on year.

Brexit Concerns


Despite the fact that the dairy brand is one of the leading Irish yoghurt names in Ireland, the company said that over 20% of its business is based in the UK.

“There is a lot of uncertainty around Brexit, however, what we do know is that the UK market will always be Ireland’s nearest neighbour," Kingston said, "and so the two countries will continue depend on each other after an agreement is ultimately reached”.

The West Cork based business also produces country butter on its family farm.
