About Us

About us george


The Cheese Merchant was founded by George Lang in 2017, who grew up on a dairy farm in Somerset. From a young age, he understood the true struggles of the British dairy industry.

Having trained at a Michelin-star restaurant as a chef, he quickly saw the need for supplying the highest quality produce with the best possible service, at all times.

After moving out of kitchens into the cheese industry, George discovered how many fantastic producers there are across the country.

Best of British Cheese

Wanting to showcase these award-winning products while educating more chefs and retailers was how The Cheese Merchant began.

Working closely with all our producers across the country allows us to get a true understanding of their business and produce.

We share the same passion for great quality, provenance, and most importantly, supporting British farmers. Additionally, you will be supporting local businesses and reducing your carbon footprint at the same time.
