Saputo Dairy UK announces switch to Doy packaging across Cathedral City grated lines


Saputo Dairy UK this week announces a move to Doy packaging for its 180g packs of Grated Cathedral City cheese, offering improved functionality and shelf presence.  

Launching from week commencing 16 November, the packaging change will apply to Cathedral City Grated Mature, Mature Lighter and Mature PMP 180g SKUS.  

The move comes after consumer research conducted by Cathedral City showed that cheese buyers prefer a re-sealable zip style of packaging, finding it easier to open, pour from and re-close. Cathedral City has taken this feedback on board and updated its grated packaging to reflect this consumer demand. 

Andy Thompson, marketing manager for Cathedral City, comments: “We know that for grated cheese buyers, convenience is key, which is why we’ve improved our packaging to make it easier to open, pour & re-close, keeping the cheese fresher for longer. With our new Doy packaging, on-shelf standout is also improved, making it easier for our customers to find The Nation’s Favourite cheese when shopping in store.” 

The transition to Doy packaging has been effected with no change to plastic usage of the primary pouch and a 15% reduction in SRP packaging material of the 180g SKUs. The new Doy pack flexible cheese film is recyclable via the TerraCycle® Cheese Film Recycling Scheme, launched by Cathedral City earlier this year in July.
