Glenilen Farm to launch range of chilled cheesecakes in Sainsbury’s stores

To capitalise on the success of its glass jar yoghurt range, specialist West Cork dairy brand, Glenilen Farm, is launching a new range of chilled cheesecakes into Sainsbury’s stores.

Available from mid-November, the range will consist of handmade cheesecakes in two flavours – Lemon and Mango & Passionfruit.

Made with a crunchy biscuit base, set with Irish butter and topped with a combination of fromage frais and fresh cream, the lemon variety is prepared with freshly squeezed lemon juice to give it a citrus kick, while the Mango & Passionfruit variety contains chunks of mango and real passionfruit seeds inside.

In line with the company’s sustainability mission, the range is presented in a tub made from recycled bottles with a push-up base to ensure easy and mess-free removal.

Speaking on the launch, Alan Kingston, owner of  Glenilen Farm, said: “Following the success of our glass jar yoghurt range which has seen sales grow by 50% in Sainsbury’s YOY, we’re delighted to announce that the retailer will stock our range of handmade cheesecakes just in time for the busy Christmas shopping period. Ready-made and ideal to serve after dinner, the products work perfectly served as a weekday treat or as part of a celebratory meal.”

Glenilen Farm is a family-run farm set up by husband and wife team, Alan and Valerie Kingston in West Cork, Ireland. The company produces yoghurt, cheesecakes and country butter as well as a range of other high-quality dairy products. It is one of the leading Irish yoghurt brands in Ireland with over 25% of its business in the UK.

The cheesecakes will be available in select Sainsbury’s stores from 20th November. RRP: £4.50
