Chain partner

Royal A-ware has specialized in cheese for 125 years. Our strength lies in being a chain partner to our clients. This means that we are able to provide for all components in the cheese chain from packaging to cutting, ripening, and processing. We assess and identify the essential requirements together with our clients to find the perfect solution using market knowledge and tailor-made products and services.

The cheese is made at our own cheese factory in Heerenveen, our cheese processing plant in Zaandam, or by cheese makers with whom we have been working for many years. We supply different types of cheese of different ages, weight, formats (blocks, grated, slices), and packaging. Below is a list of our selection of cheeses.
