How are the cheeses wrapped/protected?
We deliver our cheeses in a vacuum pouch with an outer cardboard box. On warmer days, we use chilled and insulated bespoke packaging to maintain optimum condition. Gift packages come in a wooden box.
Do vacuum bags change the taste of the cheese?
We blind tested some samples, cheeses directly from the mountain cellar, compared to cheese which spent 3 weeks in a vacuum pouch. None of the consumers nor experts (cheese makers, farmers) could tell any difference.
Don’t forget to take the cheese out of the vacuum pouch some time before consumption.
Are your cheeses pre-packed?
No pre-packaging at Alpages.co.uk! All cheeses are freshly cut to order by hand, at the moment of dispatching.
