From goodness inside…

We start with just milk, cream and a pinch of salt. Keeping things simple has helped us take care of the irresistible creamy taste and texture you love. See the full list of ingredients here.

…to taking care of what’s good around us

Even the smallest actions can have a big impact on our lives and the world we care so much about. Explore the four ways that together we are making a difference!

We're taking care of waste by helping you to always recycle or reuse our tubs

Our recyclable packaging is designed to keep the great taste of Philadelphia fresh for as long as possible. Once you've enjoyed everything inside, we want to help you recycle responsibly.

Give your tub a second life

Give your tub a second life

Your Philadelphia tub, lid and foil can be widely recycled across the UK. To find out how to recycle in your local area, visit Recycle Now.

Why not reuse your tub? Store what's left of tonight's meal. Or get your garden started by planting some fresh herbs. They'll grow quickly in your kitchen, on hand to stir into original Philadelphia.

  • 1. The UK wastes 4.4 million whole potatoes every day*
  • 2. The UK wastes 20 million slices of bread every day*
  • 3. The UK throws away 33,000 tonnes of pasta every year*

Great taste depends on quality milk so we support good farming practices

Philadelphia is only made with fresh milk from farms we trust, located close to our factories. Most of our farming partners are family-owned businesses with a herd of on average 100 cows.

We believe that caring & respecting cows is vital in producing high quality milk to turn into the best tasting Philadelphia cream cheese.

We work hand in hand with our dairy suppliers to help their farmers adopt good animal welfare practices through continuous improvement on the farm.

Meet one of our farming partners

"My family has been dairy farming for generations. Over the years we constantly modernise how we manage the farm and take care of our cows. Making sure of ideal air conditions, freedom of movement, individual feeding and enough space for every single cow.

We're also using solar power to help manage energy use on the farm.

Taking care on the farm takes the effort and focus of all of us."
