About Opies

Opies has been a firm family favourite since 1880, producing quality products to delight families every time. Opies is part of one of the oldest private family-owned food companies in the UK, best known for its famous pickled walnuts, cocktail cherries and cocktail gherkins.


The Big Cheese Weekender is a fantastic, collaborative opportunity for cheesemakers, food producers and discerning food lovers to celebrate the very best of British cheese and companion foods. We are proud to be a headline sponsor for this year’s event. At Opies, our accompaniments like Pickled Walnuts, Gherkins and traditional Pickled Onions all perfectly complement an array of British cheeses. And, as a long-standing food firm, this event also provides us with the opportunity to work with and support fellow family businesses. It is imperative that British food firms are supported in these turbulent, challenging times and events like this really help to champion this cause.
