Feeling inspired to make your favourite cheese-based recipe? Make sure you’ve got a bag of Mainland Colby grated cheese handy.

Tasting notes

With its sweet and mild taste, Mainland Colby Cheese is softer and moister in texture compared to your standard cheddar.

Making the Most of Mainland Colby Grated Cheese

Our grated Mainland Colby Cheese is a versatile, vegetarian-friendly all purpose cheese that everyone can enjoy. Excellent as a table cheese and for adding to recipes due to its mild nature. It’s excellent sprinkled on a pizza or over Mexican dishes like nachos, burritos or quesadillas because of its easy melting consistency. Store the resealable pack near the back of the fridge or in the cheese drawer - ideally at around 4°C. When putting away, make sure to store cheese in its original packaging. Available in a 400g pack.

How Colby Cheese is crafted

All our Mainland cheese has been lovingly crafted the same
way for over 70 years. Colby Cheese is softer, moister and milder than Tasty cheddar cheese due to the special washed curd process. 25% to 30% of the whey is taken from the vat and replaced with warm water. This reduces the acidity and creates the sweet flavour.
