About Us

The British Cheese Board is the voice of British cheese and is dedicated to educating the British public about eating cheese as part of a balanced diet. We have been eating cheese for thousands of years - it is safe, nutritious, is  available in thousands of different styles and is one of Britain's favourite foods.

What are the benefits of eating cheese?

- It is a natural food source
- Hard cheese contains essential nutrients - protein, vitamin -   B12, calcium and phosphorus
- It is versatile

The British Cheese Board was formed in 1995 and its members account for a significant proportion of cheese produced in the UK. The British Cheese Boad is also supported by Associate Members, who are involved in the cheese supply chain.
