Forfar Dairy's main focus for 120 years had been cow cheddar. In the 1980's, when the cheese industry became more competitive, Forfar Dairy began experimenting with alternative cheeses. Interest in cheddar was regained with the development of flavoured cheddar. Forfar Dairy flavours their cheddar with Caraway, Green Onion, Red Pepper, and Garlic and uses only Carotene, derived from plants, to colour their cheddar. Garlic and Salsa curd are factory specialties on weekends. Forfar Dairy is also manufacturing a skim milk cheese, flavoured and plain for those counting their calories. Tourists flock to the Forfar Dairy Factory Store, which carries a range of cheeses for every connoisseur, including Forfar's Dairy own assortment of goat, sheep and cow cheeses. The store also has daily fresh soup, sandwiches and ice cream cone desserts. The shelves are filled with deli products and unique gifts for all occasions.
