The Blaenafon Cheddar Company, based in Blaenavon, has launched a heart shaped cheddar cheese, ‘Mefus a Prosecco’ flavoured with Strawberry and Prosseco, with Valentine’s day and the spirit of romance in mind.

This is the latest flavour to emerge from the award-winning business based in the heart of the Blaenavon World Heritage Site.

Sue Fiander-Woodhouse, owner and managing director, said: “I’m very proud of my daughter, Charlotte Hill who developed the recipe.”

Cllr Alan Jones, executive member for business, culture, leisure and tourism at Torfaen County Borough Council, said: “It’s fantastic to hear of business success stories in Blaenavon and I’m delighted that a local food related business has the initiative, energy and innovative thinking to develop and expand its offering. I wish The Blaenafon Cheddar Company all the very best and hope they have a very prosperous 2018.”
