Description

Bega Canned Cheese

Dairying began in Australia's Bega Valley in the 1850's, with each farmer selling the produce from his own dairy. In an effort to improve their individual production and marketing activities, local farmers banded together to establish the Bega Cooperative Creamery Company on July 15, 1899. More than fifty years ago, the good people at Bega Cheese found a way to put great tasting, real cheddar cheese in a can. As a result, the Bega brand is known today throughout the world. Their product has a natural yellow color, medium cheddar flavor, and pleasing texture. It’s easy to cut, grate and slice. This is real cheddar cheese like you would expect to find in the deli case at your local grocery store, and it’s delicious!

Packaging

Each can contains 7.05 ounces of cheese (200 grams), and the cans are similar in size to a typical 6 oz. can of tuna. You can remove both ends of a can and just push out the 3-3/8" x 1-1/2" mini-cheese-wheel. It doesn’t sag, quiver or run because it’s solid cheese.

Available in a single 7.05 oz. can, a case of (12) 7.05 oz. cans or a case of (36) 7.05 oz. cans.

  • “I’m pleasantly surprised by how good this cheese is! Some reviews equated it to Velveeta. No way! This is MUCH better than that! It reminds me of a Monterey Jack. Just very good cheese! Who knew you could get great cheese in a can?!”

    – Jana P., CA

Uses

Bega canned cheese can be cut, grated or sliced into thin slices for sandwiches, pizzas, lasagna or meat loaf. It behaves just like any other deli-bought cheese–it’s great in sandwiches, omelets, or straight.

Bega's quality cheese is very popular with our customers, who use it for everyday eating as well as camping, boating (sailboaters love it), and as a long-term storable food to have on hand in case of emergency. Give Bega cheese a try. As they say down under: It's bonzer*. 

Shelf Life

There's no expiration date on this cheese. It's packaged in Australia for folks who don't have refrigeration, like many in the Australian Outback and other remote parts of the world. It's also great for those with backwoods cabins, sailboats, etc., because it stays good for an incredibly long time. Gourmet cheeses are aged in cellars for years to enhance their flavor; since this canned cheddar cheese is sealed in a sterile environment, there's no reason it can't be stored and used indefinitely. Just keep it reasonably cool, protect it from freezing as with any other cheese, and safeguard the cans from outside moisture that could cause external rust-through.

  • “Ordered a case of 36… not a single can was dented.”

    – Marc G., WA
