Dragon continues to serve up delicious treats for the Scarlets

Over the past two years, Dragon Wales Cheese and Butter has been served at the home of the Scarlets for supporters to feast on.

Two Scarlets players, Callum Williams and Eddie James, visited the site of the dairy production in North Wales to renew the partnership.

Made from only Welsh milk from across Wales, South Caernarfon Creameries produces the branded Dragon cheese and butter range as well as the premium Dragon Handcrafted selection.

Rising young stars, Scarlets winger Callum and centre Eddie, were treated to a full tour of the creamery near Pwllheli, and then went deep underground in the Llanfair Slate Caverns where the Dragon Handcrafted range is matured.

Scarlets centre Eddie James said: “Callum and I had a great day out in north Wales visiting the creamery and caverns, and witnessing first hand all the work that goes into producing the award-winning cheese. A big thanks to Dragon Cheese for their continued support of the boys, it is much appreciated.”

The farmer owned co-operative has a strong affiliation with the rugby world as last month Nigel Owens, legendary rugby referee, launched a competition to win a family year’s supply of the Dragon Handcrafted range.

After Nigel’s visit to the creamery, with his new title Chief Cheese Officer, Nigel said: “It is great seeing a Welsh farming business thriving in the heart of Wales and was wonderful to see first-hand how the Dragon Handcrafted cheeses are made and then placed underground in the slate cheese caverns. Now some lucky winner is going to receive a year’s supply of this delicious cheese – Pob lwc, Good luck!”

Kirstie Jones, SCC’s Marketing Manager said, “The Scarlets rugby team has always had an unmistakable connection with the farming community from far and wide. The platform provides us with a truly unique audience, with us supplying not only the match-day hospitality, but tasters in the supporters’ village, and advertisements throughout Parc y Scarlets stadium.

“We want to continue and now build on all the great work and invite all Scarlets and rugby supporters over the UK to enter our competition to win a family year’s supply – a massive 250 packs weighing a huge 50kgs.
