Deeside Cereals (ex Dailycer UK Ltd)

Deeside Cereals is a proud manufacturer of private label breakfast cereals and bars, predominantly for the UK and Ireland retail trade, employing over 160 people at our Head Office & production facility on Deeside Industrial Park near Chester.

Our vision for the business is that every household in the UK and Ireland enjoys a Dailycer product everyday – even if they don’t know who we are – with consumers delighted that our cereals & bars taste better and offer better value than the major national brands.  

Continual improvement is at the heart of our business & we strive every day to be employer, supplier and customer of choice.

Dailycer UK has successfully grown, with 2015 delivering almost 20% growth and 2016 set for a similar increase.

This has been achieved through delivering a customer proposition based on quality, service, value and consistency that is a testament to our team at Deeside.

Without brands of our own, we have total focus on what our customers need from their brands.

Our approach is to innovate where needed, and deliver brand-beating products that add value to customer and consumer alike.

Since 2015 Deeside Cereals has invested over £6m to increase cereal capacity in line with the needs of our customers & in new cereal bar capability to offer enrobed bars to the retail and B2B sectors.
