Crowdfunding campaign launched to save Campbeltown Creamery
A group of 29 Kintyre dairy farmers have launched a crowdfunding campaign to save Campbeltown Creamery, producers of the world-famous Mull of Kintyre cheddar.
The farmers hope to purchase the creamery, and the Mull of Kintyre cheddar brand, from current owners First Milk.
The crowdfunding campaign which seeks to raise £50,000 has been launched to aid the farmers in the purchase.
The group seeking to purchase the creamery, the Mull of Kintyre Milk Supply Cooperative, is encouraging the local community, foodies, suppliers, customers, businesses and anyone with a love of cheese to contribute to the crowdfund.
Thomas Cameron, local dairy farmer, said: “Our farmers are young, enthusiastic, committed to sustainability, investment and the next generation and have strong integrity – they are just the right group of people to secure this deal.
“We have produced a great video which shows just why the Campbeltown Creamery is so pivotal to the area and why Mull of Kintyre cheddar is so important to Scotland and I encourage everyone to please support us by heading to the crowdfund website and spreading the word.”
