We recommend that our customers do not freeze our Cornish Clotted Cream, as it is best enjoyed fresh. Once frozen, the cream becomes dry and crumbly when defrosted and its looses its creamy texture. We do blast freeze our clotted cream for some of our international customers, using a special method to help the shipping of our product. Home freezing is a slower process which can alter the consistency of our product. 

Cornish clotted cream is made from 100% milk and therefore it is suitable for vegetarians but unfortunately not for vegans.

Our clotted cream is made from 100% milk (which we source from Cornish farms based within 30 miles of our creamery). There is absolutely nothing added: no additives and no preservatives.

We carefully source our milk from farmers that go the extra mile in looking after the welfare of their cows. These farms are however not organic.

Yes it is pasteurised and therefore is it safe for both children and pregnant women to eat and enjoy.

Yes, it’s pasteurised, so it’s perfectly safe for those with a bun in the oven.

When we’re making a cream tea for a few people, we always use the following rule of thumb: one ounce per person (30 to 40g). Our special 40g single serve pots are a great way to ensure everyone has the right amount. These are available on our online shop.

In the old days, we used to use something called a split, which is a type of white roll, but it’s more common today to use a freshly baked scone. Just cut or split your scone in half and slaver each cut side with a good, thick layer of strawberry jam.  Then take a heaped dessertspoon of Rodda’s and dollop it on top. 

All you need now is a good cup of hot, freshly brewed tea. Because, as with that other noble tradition, the full English breakfast, it is a must-have accompaniment.

If you’ve been thinking of sending our cream to a friend or relative who lives abroad – unfortunately, Royal Mail and Parcelforce are not currently able to deliver our cream to addresses outside of the UK. But watch this space…

If you’re looking to send some of our clotted cream as a gift for a special occasion then by far the best way to do this is via our Cream by Post service. It’s something we’ve been running for quite some time now, in fact, this is how the Queen Mother used to get her weekly supply.

You can choose either 113g (¼lb), 227g (½lb) or 453g (1lb) pots to be delivered anywhere in the UK next day. If you’re ordering for a big occasion you can bulk order our 40g pots or go for one of our fabulously large 907g (2lbs) tubs.

You can place orders from Monday to Thursday for delivery between Tuesday and Friday. Place your order here.

Or if you’re a business and you have a wholesale or trade enquiry, please give us a ring on 01209 823300.
