Welcome to the British Cheese Board!


The British Cheese Board is the promotional and educational body for cheese within Dairy UK. We aim to educate consumers on our great British cheeses and increase awareness of cheese as part of a healthy and balanced diet.

We have over 700 named British cheeses produced in the UK, with one to suit every occasion. From summer salads to children’s lunchboxes, from festive meals to outstanding cheese and wine pairings, the British Cheese Board is dedicated to spreading the word about the versatility, taste and nutritional value of our great British cheeses.
