Cornwall, United Kingdom
The Rodda's family business started more than 130 years ago, when Eliza Jane Rodda, began making the delicacy in her farmhouse kitchen in the heart of Cornwall. Now in the fifth generation, the Rodda family are still crafting their Cornish clotted cream in the very same way they did all those years ago, through cherished family recipes and time-honoured traditions. Clotted cream is so special it has become a treasured Cornish export. Rodda’s is now considered the most loved Cornish clotted cream brand in the world, being enjoyed from Land’s End to John O’ Groats and as far away as Australia and Japan. Passionate about supporting local farming families, Rodda’s carefully selects farms within a 30-mile radius of the creamery to supply the finest milk. As well as Cornish Clotted Cream, the Rodda’s range also includes, butter, milk, clotted cream fudge and shortbread. The Rodda family also spearheaded a campaign which resulted in Cornish Clotted Cream gaining Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status in 1998, joining the prestigious ranks of Champagne, Stilton cheese and Parma ham. This means Cornish Clotted Cream must be made in Cornwall, with Cornish milk and in the traditional way.
