First developed by Cees Boterkooper in 1914 on a small dairy farm in Leerdam – from which the cheese takes its name! – Leerdammer® is recognised today as an entirely unique cheese, with its distinctive holes and a mild, nutty taste.
Now the UK’s favourite real cheese slices brand*, Leerdammer® is universally loved by consumers for its versatility and flavour. Our Leerdammer® cheese slices are perfect for lunchtime or as a quick snack, and our Light slices have 50% less fat than cheddar, making your midday meal healthier (and more delicious!) for the whole family.
