In 1967, the young Anthony Rowcliffe discovered artisanal cheeses from small producers at a French market. He then went on to conquer the UK market - with speciality cheeses from all over Europe and small UK cheesemakers. We still proudly uphold Anthony’s vision and appreciate that the cheeses available today are thanks to his campaign to support small producers.
Rowcliffe is known foremost for its unrivalled selection of cheeses however, the range of products has increased significantly from those early days. We are now celebrating some of the best deli product. Many of these offer a valuable opportunity to cross sell in-store.
The Castellino range is exclusive to Rowcliffe. Castellino supply the finest olives and vegetables from the La Marche region in Italy. Today the Castellino brand includes more than 100 Italian recipes, created by the resident chef Chiara, who relentlessly works on new product development.
