Lion has an enviable portfolio of cheese products including entertaining favourites such as South Cape, King Island Dairy and Tasmanian Heritage.

Specialty Cheese

At Lion, we’re rightly regarded as a leader in specialty cheese. With the home entertainment explosion and increased interest in the provenance of food, cheese lovers are experimenting with new styles and trading up in quality. We have recently invested in an impressive new cheese making facility called The Heritage to position Lion to innovate and further grow the category.

South Cape

Australians who love 'no fuss' entertaining head straight for South Cape. Whether hosting a weekend BBQ, a brunch for friends or a special family celebration, South Cape has a range of cheeses that will delight people of all tastes.

    Tasmanian Heritage

    Tasmanian Heritage originates from one of Australia’s oldest specialty cheese producers with a heritage dating back to 1955. Nestled in the north-west corner of Tasmania, Tasmanian Heritage sources milk from a region with geographical and latitudinal similarities to the famous French cheese making province of Normandy. This makes it the perfect environment for creating high quality cheese.

      King Island

      Guarding the stormy western entrance to Bass Strait is a lonely, rugged island. With mineral rich soils, cool annual temperatures, abundant rainfall and a consistent salt spray thanks to the constant westerly winds, the environment at King Island is perfect for quality milk production, which helps us create some of the finest cheeses on earth.

        Mersey Valley

        Mersey Valley cheese has been made in Tasmania for over 35 years and is one of Australia’s best loved vintage club cheddars. As well as the popular Original and Classic styles, Mersey Valley lovers are spoilt for choice when it comes to flavour, with delicious flavoured varieties such as Cracked Peppercorn, Pickled Onion and Ploughmans to experience
