Find out how Clandeboye Yoghurt started, the products they sell and where you can buy them
Who makes it?
Clandeboye Estate, a 2000 acre country estate in Bangor, home to Lady Dufferin the Marchioness of Dufferin and Ava.
What’s the story?
Back in 2007, the estate decided to add value to the milk produced by their pedigree herds of Jersey and Holstein Cows and so yoghurt production began.
Bryan Boggs, production manager, says ‘using milk from our farm we produce a slowly incubated natural yoghurt which is packed, flavoured or hand strained to make our authentically strained Greek Style yoghurt. It is a rich creamy yoghurt containing some Jersey milk.” The success of this has been phenomenal and it’s hard not to be proud of this success story which has helped the estate enormously.
What awards has Clandeboye Yoghurt won?
It was decided high quality would be everything from the outset, Bryan says "we work up to a standard not down to a price". Over the years we have won an increasing number of Irish and GB food awards for best yoghurt, this includes the food gold standard awards of The Great Taste Awards and the Blas na hEirann Awards.
Where can you buy Clandeboye Yoghurt?
It is stocked in most independent farm shops in the borough, make sure you ask for it! In the big nationals you will find it at Tesco, Sainsbury, Asda, Spar, Vivo, Centra, Nisa, and soon at the CoOp from the end of April. Make sure you add it to your delivery list!
