You must pick up the package ASAP as this is a perishable product.  Do not leave it there over the weekend. You probably need a Saturday arvo cheese board anyway, right?!

HOW LONG CAN CHEESE BE IN TRANSIT FOR?

Depending on weather, cheese will stay cool for three to four days in its Planet Protector Packaging.

How?
We use three packing techniques to keep cheese fresh:
1 – Woolpack lining insulation regulates temperature and reduces condensation just as wool does in nature.
2-Every package is stuffed with a frozen ice-pack. Together with the Woolpack lining this can keep things cool for up to four days.
3- We seal everything tightly in a pouch to create a stable temperature inside.

PLANET PROTECTOR PACKAGING
We’re proud to be working with Planet Protector who put the earth first by creating sustainable and eco-friendly packaging.

You can help by responsibly disposing or recycling it:
– The soft brown lining is made from wool unsuitable for textile use. Remove from its plastic to compost or put in the green garden bin. The plastic can be disposed of in the soft plastics REDycle bin.
– The ice pack gel can be squeezed down the sink with running water, pop the outer into the regular recycling bin.

Visit planetprotectorpackaging.com to discover creative recycling ideas for your packaging.

MY CHEESE DOESN’T FEEL COLD WHEN I OPEN THE BOX. 

We do everything we can to get the cheese to you nice and cool. The ice pack should be a good indicator of how well your cheese has traveled. If the ice pack still feels cool, your cheese should be happy and ready to pop in the fridge. If your ice pack has completely melted and the cheese feels warm, please reach out! If you’re unsure, email us at [email protected] just to be safe. 

STORING MY CHEESE

WHAT IS THE BEST TEMPERATURE FOR STORING CHEESE?

Depending on the cheese, 7-15 degrees is optimal. If you’re like us, a cheese room is a far away dream, so you’ll probably need to keep it in the fridge.

HOW SHOULD I STORE MY CHEESE?

Usually cheese is best stored in its wrapper. The packaging is picked by the cheese maker to cater to that cheeses needs. Some cheeses like air and some do not – this is why some come in film, and others in a paper.

Leftover cheese can be wrapped in grease paper and stored in a container, make sure to pack them individually so the flavors and aromas don’t mix.

Hint: The dairy drawer or salad crisper in your fridge limits airflow and increases the life of your cheese.

SERVING MY CHEESE

WHAT IS THE BEST TEMPERATURE FOR SERVING

 For most cheeses, room temperature is best. Yes, you’ll need to leave the cheese out for a whole hour before digging  in…patience darling, patience.
