All About Cheese

Brie & Strawberries

How is cheese made?

Step 4

Wrapping

Soft white cheeses, like Brie and Camembert are wrapped after 8-10 days maturation; blue vein cheeses – 2 months; Cheddars after a minimum of 6 months and up to 24 months and longer.

Packaging is specifically designed for each type of cheese, depending on flavour and moisture content. Some cheeses are waxed to protect them and mature their flavour differently. Soft white cheeses come in specialised wrapping that allows the cheese to continue to mature and blue cheeses are packed in laminated foil to prevent the rind from drying out.
