To make cheese a dairy needs to use a Rennet as a thickening agent. This is traditionally made using Ingredients sourced from pigs.
A vegetarian Rennet uses a Funghi based ingredient.
Your cheese order will be sent out in a secure double-walled cardboard box. The cheese will be packed snugly so as to protect it from excess movement during transit.
Will also put an ice pack into the box and send it by 24 hour delivery. This ensures freshness.
It’s hard to generalise the fridge life of all cheeses as they can vary hugely.
As a rough guide harder and more mature cheeses will last longer, whereas softer and smellier cheeses have a shorter life.
The best way to judge if your cheese is still good is by smell and taste.
After a while fresh cheese will start to develop a white mould which may be off putting. Your cheese is absolutely fine. This is a good sign, that your cheese is breathing and getting better. Scrap the mould off and carry on eating!
