Rodda’s

Alot has happened in the last 130 years since Eliza Jane began baking her famous Cornish delicacy in the Farmhouse that still stands proudly at the Redruth Creamery to this day. Now in the fifth generation of the family business, Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream is still crafted in the very same way, making Eliza Jane proud.

But what makes Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream so special? Well, it is the delicate golden crust, it’s a mark of quality and the Rodda’s family expertise to get it just right. The cream is gently baked and this is where the magic happens, the crust starts to appear as the tastiest and richest bits rise to the top in the cooking process. Nothing beats breaking through the seal with a spoon to experience the smoothness of the cream below.

Supporting local farmers is key to everything Rodda’s do, they build relationships with farmers that are based on trust and team spirit and all of their milk is sourced from farms within just 30 miles of the creamery. You can’t make the best cream without the best milk! All the farms are certified by the Red Tractor Farm Assurance Dairy.

Rodda’s have a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), it’s an award given by the European Commission, designed to protect traditional, regional foods against imitation. For chefs and lovers of fine foods, it’s a guarantee of quality and authenticity. If you see the words ‘Cornish clotted cream’ on a label, you can be sure that the product inside has been made from distinctively rich and creamy local Cornish milk (a product of Cornwall’s sea breezes, and subtropical climate) and with the traditional cooking method that has been used in Cornwall for generations.
