Our Future

As a family business that’s been around since 1847, we know the importance of creating a long term, sustainable future.

Caring about our employees, our impact on the communities we work in, the farmers that supply us with milk, and the environment, is important to us today, and as we look towards the future.

Our people  

We couldn’t make our great-tasting Stilton and blue cheese without our talented cheesemakers. The whole team at Cropwell Bishop Creamery helps us to maintain the highest standards of cheese craft and are regarded as part of the family. In return we aim to make Cropwell Bishop creamery a great place to work – keeping people safe at work, treating everyone equally and paying a fair wage.

Responsible sourcing 

We work hard to ensure that all workers in our supply chain are treated in the same way we treat our own employees. We are members of Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX) and any suppliers to our business must also be SEDEX registered.

The environment 

We are committed to managing our impact on the environment. Whether that’s working with the farmers that supply us with milk to ensure cows have access to grazing, or reducing the use of plastic in our packaging, we aim to use and respect all our resources in a way that reduces waste and minimises the impact of our business processes on the natural environment and community.

We have a series of policies that define our commitments and our expectations of our suppliers.
