About JS Bailey Cheese

John Bailey founded the company in 1984 in Nantwich, Cheshire, home of the famous International Cheese Awards since 1897.

This was not by chance: by locating his company, J S Bailey, in the UK’s centre of excellence, John was able to choose his suppliers, cheese makers ranging from small farmhouse kitchens, where the cheese is made by hand to this day, to larger manufacturers from across the UK and Europe.

Over the years the company flourished, growth meant a move to larger premises in nearby Calveley Mill where we now house all our production and distribution facilities as well as our shop and café.


We continue to invest in the company, in staffing and equipment. In 2016 we were listed in the London Stock exchanges 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.
And in 2020 we were awarded BRC AA Grade for Food Storage & Distribution.
