Together we're taking care

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.

Reduce your food waste with Philadelphia

Whether you've cooked too much pasta, boiled too many potatoes, or neglected the ends from your loaf of bread, Philadelphia is here to save your surplus food from being thrown away and - with a little creativity and a helping hand from your favourite cream cheese - transform it into a delicious meal for you and your family.

Every end is a new beginning

We know what it’s like. When you’ve enjoyed some fresh bread, those end slices don’t seem quite as tasty. But they can be! Here are some bread-saving recipes to prove it.

With the magic of a toaster and a spoonful of Philadelphia, those ends can be as delicious as any other slice. Let’s all help end bread waste and love our ends.

The End of Bread Waste

We throw out a whopping 20 millions slices of bread every week in the UK. And a staggering 1.2 billion end slices are chucked out every year.

We’re on a mission to put an end to bread waste by showing you how delicious the end slices can be with the help of a little Philadelphia. What’s not to love about that?

Philadelphia Food Waste Hack

Did you know that you can bring stale bread back to life by immersing it in water and then baking it for 8 minutes? It makes it perfectly ready for a thick spreading of Philadelphia for a tasty lunch.

Make It Last

We all think it’s a good idea but bread doesn’t actually like the fridge! The low temperature extracts moisture and makes the bread go stale quicker.

Instead, keep your bread in the packaging at room temperature. And if you have any slices left after a couple days, pop them in the freezer. When you’re ready for that next sandwich, just toast the frozen slices to bring them back to life.

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."
