    Are you looking int he right places? It seems odd to stop selling such popular cheeses.

    Whatever turns you on, I suppose.

    My local one has stopped doing Mornflake Oats, which is sad.

    I got sad when the Co-op stopped selling their own brand choc-chip muesli.

    The limited number of meat pastes too, dwindling all the time, bacon grill seems to have disappeared and you can’t get tinned steam puddings for love or money…

    t**ts.

    Yeah it pisses me off when I can get 6 types of own brand cheddar, plus 10 named brands that are identical, but no Wensleydale.

    +1

    Although the cheese counter in Morrisons is far far better, as is the selection of beer.

    Is it just my local Tesco and coop supermarket that has done away with the normal Cheshire, Lancashire, Wensleydale cheeses?

    pisses me right off

    The local tesco seems to gradually stop stocking anything nice of any description

    90% lindt, Yorkshire provender soup, lots of european beers seem to have disappeared, continental cheeses

    Part of a (not so) gradual shift to own brand. Don’t shop there much any more as a result. TBH it’s a trend all over, we have noticed many brands we used to buy in French supermarkets have been replaced by lesser brands.

    My local Morrisons has a beer festival thing on just now. Lots of ales from regional breweries and some further afield. Costing me a small fortune this last week or two.

    You’ll find that the majority of Lancashire, Wensleydale and Cheshire producers (us included) do produce high quality product and are sought after if they win awards at the shows. In fact some of the suppliers of supermarket own brand are farmhouse cheesemakers like us, e.g. Butlers, Singletons and Belton. There however has been a downturn in the sale of acid cheeses in the last 12 months with an increase in different types of cheddars and alternatives to traditional territorials such as Beltons Red Fox (a crunchy Red Leicester style cheese). There is also a greater choice of product out there so the consumer are trying more variations. Supermarkets are also swaying away from pre-pack portions and pushing product on deli-counters where you’ll tend to find your regional ranges.
    We’ve found our Crumbly and Creamy Lancs trads have dipped in sales but our additive cheese has made an unexpected surge of late.
    Whilst product may be labelled as own brand it usually states the provenance of the product in the case of the territorials. e.g. We put 4 territorials into Spar and our name is emblazoned across the front.

    One of them is White Cheshire which we’ve won a few awards with so pop into your local Spar and you might be surprised 😉

    Just quit supporting supermarkets and start making the time to source decent stuff from small suppliers, even if it’s online.

    The sooner they stop making Sage Derby, the better. Absolute nightnmare cleaning the machines after production. 👿

    Even independents such as Ken Warne in Richmond? Surprisingly there are a lot of independent supermarkets still out there.

    You have to resort to buying your cheese at Tesco? And they say that its civilised down there?

    Just to remind you that the cheese stall on Rammy market on a Saturday has the best selection of cheeses ever. Just sayin’……

    “Have you got any?” he asked, expecting the answer “No”.

    They’ve been a good customer for years! In fact you’d be hard pressed to find someone who isn’t!
