Let’s start with these. The shelf life of our vegan cheeses is 3 weeks. I have been thinking about how to extend this. We currently sell our product in plastic containers and I have been thinking about vacuum sealing for a while. I want to keep the oval shape of the cheese, but how to get a clean edge when vacuum sealed? And, I would want to find some kind of eco-friendly wrap. I haven’t found a green vacuum bag yet.
So, if I do vacuum seal, what would I get? Another 3 weeks or so. Our product is produced fresh weekly, so I don’t know if that “freshness” would last 6 weeks no mater how tightly sealed.
Do I go for freshness or shelf longevity?
Either way, I definitely am changing the packaging. So I have to keep meditating on that aspect as well.

Sounds good to you, huh?
