Tilly's Story

Tilly Carefoot joined Singletons Dairy in 1985 to work alongside her Father Alan Riding.  Tilly has spent all her working life at Singletons and knows an awful lot about cheese - although she has also managed to fit bringing up 3 children into her busy career.

Since Alan’s retirement Tilly is now the Managing Director and in full control of building on her predecessors’ success and taking it forwards.  She has very successfully taken the brand from being a national success to being truly international – under Tilly’s leadership Grandma’s cheese is now exported to over 30 countries and they have won the Queens Award for export twice.

In 2011 Tilly honoured her Great Grandmother Duilla by rebranding the full range of cheese made at Singletons Dairy as “Grandma Singletons”. Even today, when technology has marched on and so many things have changed in the World, our award winning cheese is still Made Grandma’s Way.
