The Kenilworth Cheese Factory was established in 1950 by the Kraft Corporation to manufacture bulk cheese. The factory was closed in the 1980’s when Kraft centralised their production. This move left many in the local community unemployed.
With the support of a local businessman several of the factory’s employees then purchased the factory. It re-opened for business in September 1990 as Kenilworth Country Foods. Now in its third incarnation, the factory was recently purchased by a well-known local dairying family and is now called Kenilworth Dairies.
You can witness the making of the Cheese from a viewing platform and sample many of their wonderful cheeses. From handcrafted, matured, wax-coated cheeses made using traditional recipes to a wide range of flavoured, gourmet club cheddars to every-day family favourite cheddars and fetta cheese.
Kenilworth Dairies are also makers of fine Yoghurt and Mousse. The Factory and Cafe is open to visitors seven days a week from 9am to 4pm. Come in for coffee, lunch or both. Spoil yourself and purchase from the Cellar Door any of the Kenilworth Dairies' products or other gourmet products from regional businesses.
