Cheese Storage Paper

Cheese Storage Bags

Biodegradable Cheese Storage Sheets

What are these sheets? This professional grade material has been sold exclusively to our wholesale customers, but now, only on our website, we are offering it to the home consumer. This transparent material is made specifically for wrapping cheese by our manufacturer in France. These sheets are derived from wood-based cellulose fibers making it 100% biodegradable. These sheets are designed to be permeable to moisture and allow oxygen exchange, making them ideal for all cheese types.

Can the sheet be recycled? No, but cellophane is biodegradable and compostable in a commercial composting facility.
