JJ Sandham offer contract smoking to cheese wholesalers and other local cheese makers guaranteeing a pure-tasting and hygienic product every time.

Due to the ongoing success of our contract smoking, we installed our second smoking kiln in 2018, enabling us to double our capacity in state-of-the-art smoking facilities. This means we can smoke cheese and dairy products for other producers as well as develop our own award winning range of smoked cheese.

With total control over the smoking process and more than 20 years experience in smoking cheese, JJ Sandham can deliver a refined and delicate smoked flavour to all types of cheese. 

The art of smoking cheese is the ability to produce the perfect density and speed of smoke required to enhance the cheese’s natural flavours with a rich nuttiness that so many people enjoy.

JJ Sandham has won many local and national awards for our range smoked cheese.

We only smoke dairy products so there is no risk of cross-contamination.

Our smoking facility is for dairy only and we have successfully smoked a varied range of products including butter, Brie, Stilton and Mozzarella.

We use the finest BRC accredited, sustainable oak smoking chips, which produce a golden colouring and a smooth smoky flavour without the residual bitterness you often find with lower quality woodchip.

Hickory, Cherry, Oak, Beech, Spruce, Chestnut, Mesquite and Apple are also available. 

For more details on our smoking service please contact us.

We have worked with the team at  JJ Sandham’s for their contract smoking service for many years, and during this time, we have built a good solid working relationship with a firm that really are experts in their field.  We love their “can-do” approach to getting the job done and would have no hesitation in recommending them.
