Udder Delights is a family owned and operated business based in the pristine Adelaide Hills. Saul & Sheree Sullivan, and Sheree’s father Trevor Dunford, are the people behind the brand. Together they have displayed a synergy of talents, effort and vision to build a business and brand that is well respected within the national food industry.
Udder Delights cheese has been available in the market place since 1999. As each year passes new cheeses are launched, new suppliers bought on, new customers introduced and new skills are learned. The ability to change, take a risk and invest in what we believe has been the catalyst to our success; however it all started so long ago…
Trevor and Estelle went about investigating, and eventually building, the first stage of the cheese factory. Son Andrew had a brainwave of a name while up a tree picking local cherries – Udder Delights. And so it began in 1999.
Five years later Saul Sullivan ‘married a business’ so to speak, and wed Sheree, while becoming joint owners in the Udder Delights cheese factory. Together they have been a formidable force mastering the art of cheese making, passionately driving business, while having the insight to make significant changes along the way (and have a few kids of their own too).
Trevor was able to stop milking goats in 2004 and retired as a corporate jet pilot in 2010 to focus his time and energy on literally expanding the cheese factory. His current role is one of maintenance, construction, invention and ingenuity.
Estelle was pivotal to the ongoing perseverance of developing the business and tragically died in 2011 at the young age of 58 due to brain tumour. As you could understand this impacted us emotionally and financially. We made a commitment to continue the business in her honour and as part of her legacy.
Now the Udder Delights Group is formed and encompasses the flagship regional Udder Delights brand, and also includes the organic biodynamic Divine Dairy and the recently launched Cremeux Provincial Cheese. Being in a regional area we are passionate about providing employment to local families – and not only have a significant workforce but also work very closely with several dairy families and suppliers. Our combined vision and focus is to make really good cheese really accessible, and we hope you enjoy it!
