When do you deliver?

All of our boxes are sent out on Wednesdays for Thursday delivery. Our packaging is climate controlled so it arrives to you fresh.

Will my cheese stay fresh during delivery?

Hell yeah! We are the very first cheese delivery company to insulate our boxes, so our chilling packs work a treat keeping your cheese in perfect condition until you have a chance to get it in the fridge/eat it immediately on the doorstep. Not judging here!

What if I'm not in? That worries me a lot.

Well it doesn't worry us cheesy amigo! That's because your cheese will be left as per your safe place instructions entered at checkout, and all the spiel about the insulating and chilling...well that applies for up to 48hrs. Your cheese is gonna be ok...as are you.

OK, but I bought this cheese as a gift for someone else...what if my safe place instructions aren't...safe?

As long as you have left a mobile number and/or email for the recipient, they will get delivery updates (although if it is a surprise best to enter your own), with an option to enter their own safe place instructions...you're off the hook, and your recipient's neighbours will not be getting free cheese.

How long do the cheeses keep?

Soft cheese - up to 1 week
Blue cheese - up to 1 week
Hard cheese - up to 2 weeks

We would always recommend eating the cheese we deliver to you as soon as possible though as that is when it will taste the best!

Can I eat cheese while pregnant?

This is not official advice and we recommend referring to the NHS website to make sure you’re comfortable with what you’re eating during pregnancy. As a general rule of thumb, you can eat any cheese as long as it’s totally cooked through – so you don’t have to give up cheese toasties! There is also plenty of evidence suggesting that hard, matured cheeses are also safe, even if they are unpasteurised. You should avoid all soft cheeses (unless fully baked through), including those with washed or bloomy (white) rinds and soft blue cheese, unless otherwise advised by a health care worker. Be aware of any uncooked puddings, such as cheesecake or ice cream, which may contain unpasteurized cheeses and milk.

How do I recycle my packaging?

At BBC Good Food Cheese Club, we try and use the minimal amount of packaging needed to keep your cheese safe. Any packaging that we do use is carefully thought through. For more info on how to reuse or recycle your packaging, head to our packaging blog.

Is there any allergy information I need to be aware of?

If you have any allergies, to be on the safe side, it's best to email in and check with our team. The email address is bbcgoodfoodcheeseclub@thecheesegeek.com
