Cheese is Alive: Keep It That Way

ImageHi, everyone. 

We're delighted to announce the arrival in the East Store cheese dept. of a great new product..."Cheese Paper."  Finally, cheese storage is made simple! Formaticum produces cheese paper specifically designed to keep cheese fresh and delicious. Two-ply cheese paper simulates the cheese cave environment. It’s time to start treating cheese like any other highly perishable product – and that means proper handling and storage. There is a common misconception that cheese can last for long periods of time. Not true! Most cheese has a finite shelf life.

Only whole wheels of cheese are aged. Once a wheel is cut into retail-sized pieces, the cheese is much more delicate and susceptible to rapid deterioration. This is when proper handling and storage can mean the difference between eating vibrant and delicious cheese or dead and rotten cheese.



Two-ply cheese paper maintains proper humidity and allows adequate oxygen exchange to keep cheese alive and tasty. Formaticum cheese paper will be the difference between good cheese and bad cheese.

The paper is located on top of the cheese case. Each package contains fifteen 11" x 14" sheets, plus labels.

And for a lot of great cheese tips plus a great video on how to properly wrap cheese, visit the Formaticum website.
