Jarlsberg® is proud to announce its sponsorship of the 2017 Royal Park Half Marathon. The new sponsorship will enable Jarlsberg® to communicate to the running community that cheese can be eaten as part of a healthy diet. Jarlsberg® is the ideal cheese to snack on as it is low in salt, has 8% less fat than traditional cheddar and has 27% protein content (per 100g). Runners can also add it to meals and enjoy Jarlsberg® as part of a healthy diet and active lifestyle.


Jarlsberg®, known for its distinctively creamy texture, sweet and nutty taste and large, round holes is available in slices and wedges as well as a full 10kg wheel from your local high street retailer or delicatessen!

The Jarlsberg® Big Cheese Melt Van will also be attending the event so the runners and their families can sample some of their fantastic cheese recipes.


Norseland Ltd produces some of the best-known names and strongest-selling cheeses on the British market, from the ever-popular smoky Applewood® to the fiery Mexicana®. 

Norseland was formed in November 2008 when the leading Norwegian dairy cooperative, Tine BA Group, acquired The Ilchester Cheese Company in Somerset, England. Norseland’s objective was clear – to create a platform of excellence, based in the UK, on which to drive the speciality cheese market forward both at home and abroad, using strengths from both parties. Somerset is where The Ilchester Cheese Company was born back in 1962, when founder Ken Seaton added beer to his Cheddar to keep it fresh on the bar of his pub.
