For years we’ve had people ask us about real, shelf-stable, storable cheese, and we’ve had to turn them away. Now you can have a great tasting, rich, high-quality cheese . . . and who cares if the electricity goes off??
For those of you familiar with the Kraft canned cheese we carried for a couple of years, you will be real happy with this new cheese from Bega Private Labeled for us under our Red Feather Brand Name – also made in Australia. Although the Kraft cheese is called cheddar too, most of our customers say it reminds them more of a white American cheese than a cheddar.
BEGA Cheese, who has actually been making cheese and only cheese much longer than Kraft – since 1899, has found a way to make a real cheese in a can with the same indefinitely shelf life taste much better than the Kraft cheese (see below for more on the company and the production of this great product). Produced in a can and sold in Australia for more than 50 years, Bega is a household name in many parts of the world. You’ll first notice that it is yellow like a cheddar cheese should be. Second, you’ll be pleased with the sharper cheddar flavor. And lastly, you’ll find that the texture is better too – easier to cut, grate and slice than the Kraft, which tends to crumble when you try to cut it thin.
Most importantly, because Kraft is moving their production facility to Saudi Arabia instead of Australia, the Kraft cheese will become much more expensive in the coming months. But since we can use our extra dairy quota left over from the Red Feather Canned Butter that we already import, we’re able to deliver the Bega Cheese to you for a much lower price! Give some a try – you will be pleased, we guarantee it. If you are not happy with it, we will gladly refund 100% of your purchase price.

One product that has always been missing from food storage programs is been real CHEESE. It’s true that, if you have a wine cellar, you can buy a waxed wheel of cheese and store it (i.e. age it) for years. That’s a bit expensive and unwieldy, but if you are doing well enough to own a wine cellar, you probably can afford a 50 lb wheel of cheese – and you won’t mind throwing about half of it away when it molds over after you cut it open.
For those of us with more modest means, we now have real Bega® Cheddar Cheese – in a can!!! Its technical name is “Processed Cheddar Cheese.” That’s that name they have to give it legally because it wasn’t “naturally” produced by a Wisconsin cheese master. But from the ingredients and from the TASTE, you’ll believe it is honest-to-Goodness real Wisconsin-made cheese! Make no mistake, this isn’t liquid or semi-solid cheese – it is real cheddar cheese like you would expect to find in a deli case at your local grocery store.
It’s just plain delicious.
Powdered and Freeze Dried cheese products have been available for years, and they are actually not too bad for some applications. They make an excellent sauce, dip or spread, but there’s just something not right about spreading cheese on your sandwich like it was peanut butter. For some things, there is no substitute for the real thing…
Each can contains 200 grams (7 Ounces) of Cheese, and the cans are a little larger in diameter than a 6 oz. can of tuna and about 25% taller.
We’ve leaned that the best way to serve it is if you open both ends of the can and then push out the 3 1/4″ x 1 3/4″ mini-wheel of cheese. You’ll find that it doesn’t sag, it doesn’t quiver and it doesn’t run – it is solid cheese!
This is real cheese that can be grated like any other cheese. It melts, it can be sliced into thin slices for sandwiches, pizzas, lasagna or meat loaf, and it behaves just like any other deli-bought cheese – it’s great for grilled cheese sandwiches, fantastic omelets or just by the slice.
Because we bring this in by the container about every 45 days with the Canned Butter, you’ll always be guaranteed to receive fresh product any time you order. Bega Cheese complies completely with both FDA and USDA requirements and is even Hala certified. This cheese has no expiration date according to the spec provided by Bega and will store for many years. No one is sure for exactly how many – they’ve never tested it just for longevity. It’s packaged this way in Australia and in the Middle East for folks who don’t have refrigeration, like many in the outback or in third world countries. The manufacturer is confident it will last “indefinitely”. Since it’s in a sterile environment, air can’t circulate so germs can’t get to it – there’s no reason that it can’t store indefinitely. Just keep it as cool as you can , but protect it from freezing as with any other cheese. Once you open a can, it’s best to refrigerate any leftovers, though it will most likely last a few more days in a zipper-locking baggie or tinfoil without refrigeration. (CASE 36 CANS)
