Cheese, cheese and more cheese!


I’m at cloud nine as a cheese lover!


Six differents types of cheddar from the range including Mainland Vintage, Mainland Tasty, Mainland Tasty Light, Mainland Colby, Mainland Edam and Mainland Gouda.



Vintage Cheddar Block

A rich, full bodied cheddar, aged for 24 months for that extra sharp taste and crumbly texture. Great as snack with bread and on cheese board or garnish for salad or pasta. I love this the most among the six for its intense flavor, very cheesilicious indeed!



Tasty Cheddar Block

Aged for 18 months, this cheddar is sharp and full-flavored with slightly crumbly texture. It’s the cheese for all – snacking or cooking. Use it to make exceptional sandwiches and pizzas.



Tasty Light Cheddar Block

A delectable tasty but light; yet full flavoured cheddar made healthier with 30% less fat. Suitable for vegetarians and has the Heart Foundation Tick. A cheese to indulge on its own and it’s ideal for Asian cuisine.



Colby Block

A soft, smooth and creamy cheese variety witha  sweet, mild flavor. It’s a quick & easy melt cheese; producing consistent melt with minimal browning. Melts best when grated A perfect topping to just about anything.



Edam Block

 A smooth Dutch-style cheese with a creamy mild taste and is less 25% fat. Mellow, smooth and slightly salty, this is an all-purpose cheese perfect or cooking, snacking or cheese boards. Also pairs well with fruits.



Gouda Block

A creamy textured cheese with a sweet, buttery, mellow flavour. Perfect addition to any cheese board or as dessert cheese. Great snacking; kids love it.
