Collier's Powerful Welsh Cheddar was developed from the mining traditions of South Wales. As a boy, the founder of the brand watched his grandfather's tough existence as a miner and noticed the camaraderie and strength of the community in which they lived.

Cheese had always been a staple part of the diet of miners, their wives appreciated the nutritious nature of cheese and the fact that it was simple to pack, with no waste. It was the ideal food to sustain miners as they worked below ground for many hours at a time. Years later the opportunity arose to create a cheese brand and childhood memories came flooding back.

Following intensive research Collier's Powerful Welsh Cheddar was launched, a tribute to mining communities throughout Britain and a modern day reflection of a distinctive taste.
