Cheese is our passion, and is embedded in our culture. It’s constantly on our minds, and on our breaths (sorry!). We are forever talking about it; we crave it; we even lose sleep over it (we partially blame the surreal blue cheese dreams for that!). Our love of cheese is systemic from a love of food in general, and is one of the endless triumphs along the great food journey.
Our close alliances with revered artisanal cheesemakers has provided us with an exclusive, varied, and esteemed range of cheeses at our disposal. As such, flights leave Charles de Gaulle and Venice Marco Polo airport/s every fortnight laden with fresh cheeses from across Europe, bound for our cheese rooms and larders – delivering the freshest cheese available anywhere within Australia. This means you get the world’s best cheeses in the world’s best condition.
Although we have grown as a company and are now considered the leading independent specialty cheese importer, exporter, distributor, and retailer in Australia, and stock the finest restaurants, wineries, provedores, and homes throughout the country, we still remain the same personable, boutique cheese specialist from 1998. We run regular workshops, tastings, and classes with staff and clients, as well as hosting prestigious specialty tasting/pairing events for the public.
We regularly frequent our European suppliers, and continue to search for new (which often translates to old) cheese makers and affineurs – those which have remained guarded village secrets. Our range of New World cheese continues to expand as exciting, new cheese makers begin to emerge and embrace this most noble of traditions – and this thrills us greatly.
Our acute logistics capabilities ensure cheeses are air and sea freighted promptly and hygienically in temperature-controlled storage facilities specific to cheese varietals. Our maturing rooms and warehouse abide to the strictest hygiene standards, and are constantly reviewed by our own internal hygiene body (as well as officially licenced health inspectors). This guarantees not only the freshest cheeses, but also the finest representation of the cheese. It is these exacting standards, and blind dedication (which may seem a little nutty to others) that makes our cheese truly the world’s best cheese.
