Uhrenholt in Europe
to wholesale, foodservice and the food industry.
Uhrenholt has long had a presence in Eastern Europe, but in recent years our focus has expanded to include all developing markets of Eastern Europe and several Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). As such, the region covered stretches from Europe all the way to the borders of China encompassing the immense landmasses of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Although sales are initially small, our collaboration with local distributors grows year on year. Transactions are mostly characterised by bulk goods that are further distributed into the foodservice, retail and industrial sectors. Hard cheeses such as Gouda, Maasdam, Edam and Cascaval are in high demand across the board. These cheese types are mostly sold by the loaf and can be seen in supermarket deli-counters ready for cut-up by weight. The market for more specialized cheeses sought by the foodservice sector is also growing with our cheeses ending up on hotel cheese boards, fast food pizza and bakery chains. Our strength is providing solutions that meet the needs of our local partners, be they large or small, product or delivery specific.
Servicing Ships Worldwide
Through partnerships with global ship supply companies, Uhrenholt helps service marine and offshore operations with dairy products and frozen vegetables. We have made this an area of expertise with in-house specialists within ship chandling, tenders and global logistics. We frequently participate in tender invitations and gladly assist our partners with the same. Our abilities within sourcing and consolidation of dairy goods is unique – we pride ourselves in being able to offer niche products. Furthermore, our well-known brands, especially Friendship, are sought after by ship provisions and culinary staff, which is a great testament to our long-standing efforts in this area. Ship chandling continues to be a growing business worldwide and Uhrenholt is here to assist any operators in this area.
Uhrenholt Offers Organic Range
Uhrenholt attended GastroNord in Sweden in association with The Danish Agriculture and Food Council. The booth was creatively designed to signal organic, home grown produce in order to appeal to current market trends. For Uhrenholt the purpose of attending the fair was to display our new range of organic products to current and potential customers.
Amongst others, Uhrenholt works with organic partner NaturMælk with products such as “Hay Cheese”, which is produced with milk from cows that are purely fed on hay, which has been combined with up to 8 different herbs in the meadows! The unique Hay Cheese is here displayed by Uhrenholt sales staff.
Organic and specialty cheeses are gaining ground as they offer new additions to regular cheese board types, which is why Uhrenholt also offers organic cheeses to meet consumer demand.
By Popular Demand
Vegan cheese is one of the fastest growing cheese segments in Sweden with 45% of the population eating vegetarian food at least once a week. This trend is set to last as approx. 25% of Swedish people claim they will generally eat more vegetarian food year on year. Based on the increased market demand, Uhrenholt has ventured into the Vegan cheese segment offering sliced cheese variants Original, Mozzarella and Cheddar in the Emborg brand. Emborg Vegan is currently found in more than 50 COOP supermarkets across Sweden. However, Uhrenholt anticipates more outlets and markets will follow suit in the quest to match the needs of ever increasing food conscious consumers.
Burgers in Sunset Boulevard
The Danish fast-food chain Sunset Boulevard extends their concept and introduces two new burgers on the menu - the Hereford Béarnaise Burger and the Double Burger.
With a desire to challenge the existing burger market and spoil Danish consumers with a little extra, a completely new line of burgers have been introduced, offering burgers with high quality ingredients - and cheddar cheese supplied by Uhrenholt.
Similar agreements have been made with other international fast food businesses, as Uhrenholt already has collaborations with fast food chains in Asia like Pizza Hut and Domino’s.
