This is a Styrofoam-insulated shipping carton that will keep cheese and butter colder than if sent in a regular box. It will accommodate up to 12 pounds of butter or cheese, and is shipped with ice blocks. This is highly recommended for warm locations during the warmer months (April to October). If your shipping location is 3 or more days shipping via UPS Ground, we also recommend you choose Second Day Air shipping during the warmer months.
Even with these measures, your cheese may still arrive warmed through.Cheese pre-dates the Romans and the Romans pre-date Frigidaire. The cheese will still be safe and good if warmed through for a couple days. If your cheese is refrigerated immediately upon arrival, it will still be in fine, acceptable shape, with no degradation of quality or safety.
