IQF Shredded Red Cheddar is made from pasteurised cow’s milk.
Colour pigments are added during the curdling of the milk and give the cheese it’s typical colour.

The product is cleverly portioned and very easy to use.

Our IQF freezing system and smart portioning ensure that kitchen professionals can design new recipes with enhanced flavour. At the same time it’s easy to keep a tight control on costs and also keep waste to a minimum.
