Wyke Farms, the UK’s largest independent cheese producers and generators of renewable energy, has announced a national partnership with Good Energy, the 100% renewable electricity and green gas company.

Going live on February 17, Wyke Farms will be hosting an on-pack competition with Good Energy for 20 weeks, giving consumers the opportunity to win one of several prizes. The main prize is a lifetime supply of renewable electricity (value £22k), as well as 20 x ‘one year supply’ capped at £550 per year each and 50 Somerset produce hampers, worth £50 each. The competition will appear on all Wyke Farms Cheddar packs, across the core range of Mature, Extra Mature and Vintage.

The brands hope the partnership will increase consumer understanding of the environmental consequences of their consumption choices, be it for food or energy. With over 50% of UK food coming from a foreign country, Wyke Farms’ are proud to tell their farm to fork story. The Clothier family have been making award winning cheddar from their traditional family recipe, in the heart of Somerset, for over 155 years, with all of their milk coming from their family farm or other local family farms and British Red Tractor farms.  

Rich Clothier, 3rd generation family member and managing director at Wyke Farms said: “The prize offering of our competition has the humble cow at the very heart of it; firstly, by supplying the milk to make the cheese and then to create the waste that generates the power, which will be supplied by Good Energy to fulfill the prize. It’s working with nature at its very best.”
