Curd & Cure was originally founded in 1988 as the Cheddar Cheese Company which started off trading as an egg and cheese supplier, operating out of the family home and the garage which was converted into a small cold store. The business would drive down to AJ & RG Barbers in Somerset and collect primary Cheddar and then sell products throughout Kent via van sales. Business went from strength to strength and we moved from the garage to our own 500 square foot unit down the lane from the house.
After years of establishing regular customers and getting to know each customer personally, more and more people began asking for more unusual continental cheeses not freely available in Britain. This is when the product range began to flourish due to the growing need and desire for more Artisan and Continental products. Before long the range had grown from specialising in cheddar, to offer artisan French, Italian and local cheeses, to cooked meats and pate.
Due to the ever increasing range the decision was made in 2003 to change the name from the Cheddar Cheese Company to Cheeseworks.
In 2006 our 500 square foot unit was bursting at the seams and we move into a neighbouring 2000 square foot unit allowing us to expand out cutting room capabilities and storage. Having this extra space also allowed us to get ourselves our first walk in freezer meaning we could start holding speciality breads and other frozen products on stock at our customers’ requests.
In April 2016 we made the brave decision to rebrand as a company and become Curd & Cure! The aim of this was to give customers a better understanding of the company we have become, the product range we offer and break the common perception that we just sell cheese. As the company continued to expand we took on a further two units which gave us a total space of 3,500 square foot.
Now in 2018 the company is enjoying its 30th year of trade and has now just moved into its own state of the art custom built unit in Staplehurst which spans over 10,500 square foot! This much needed space will allow us to start stocking a vast amount of new local products and allow for future growth and business development.
