Lynher Dairies is a community – some of our team members have been with us for fifteen years, and many more for ten. We support one another, take a whole team approach and respect flexible working, with individual aims and ambitions high on our agenda.
We are active beyond the Lynher community too, and show commitment to the wider food sector in many ways. Catherine Mead is vice chair of the SCA (Specialist Cheese Association) and chair of Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall. Lynher Dairies is a member of Cornwall Food and Drink, Dairy UK, and a sponsor of the UK Cheese Guild and the new Academy of Cheese. Dane Hopkins, Dairy Director, sits on the Food Advisory Board of Duchy College.
We take our charitable commitment seriously, with a monthly contribution to the Cornwall Community Foundation. We actively support the Cornwall Food Foundation and are a sponsor of the Cornish World Heritage Sites.
Our cheese often features in local and national fund raising raffles and the individual charitable endeavours of our team – Zenna ran the London Marathon in 2016 – are always match funded by the dairy.
We process two and a half million litres of carefully selected Cornish milk, hand pick three tonnes of nettle and wild garlic leaves and produces more than 250 tonnes of cheese a year. By industry standards, that puts Lynher in the small-scale dairy bracket but at the same time, we are a large employer in a rural area. Our responsibility as such is proven by the majority of our employees coming from dairy’s immediate catchment area of Falmouth, Stithians, and the Camborne/Pool area.
