Fivemiletown Cheese takes off at Belfast International Airport

Published: 04 August 2011

Business Lounge travellers at Belfast International Airport are now able to experience the distinctive flavours of Fivemiletown Creamery’s award winning cheese from a decision to focus on local food.

The airport has linked up with Fivemiletown to offer around 30,000 passengers who use the lounge annually the opportunity to snack on speciality cheese products that have won a string of international awards for taste and quality.

Fivemiletown Creamery is supplying soft brie, blue and goats’ cheese, including Ballybrie, Ballyblue and Cooneen, along with its Oakwood Smoked Cheddar for us in the airport’s plush Business Lounge, which is also used by Business First passengers on the popular Continental service to New York’s Newark Airport.

The creamery’s latest contract was agreed by Owen Jones, Fivemiletown’s Business Development Manager, and Brian Carlin, Director of Commercial Developemnt at Belfast International Airport.

Mr Jones said: “Winning the contract from such a prestigious customer as Belfast International Airport is a marvellous boost for the creamery and an important endorsement of the quality of our speciality cheese.

“Travellers will be able to experience cheese that’s rated among the best in the UK and Ireland. As well as quality, they can count on the provenance of our cheese because it’s sourced from high protein milk provided by our own farmers in the lush pastures of the Clogher Valley.

“The contract is also an immensely important boost for our strategic focus on expanding our foodservice business.”
