About the Victory Cheese Box
The COVID-19 crisis is devastating the entire American artisan cheese industry, from dairy farmers and cheesemakers to distributors, restaurants, and cheese counters. A grass-roots collection of cheese professionals has banded together to identify ways to sustain our struggling industry. The Victory Cheese Box was born from this group in an effort to pull the supply chain together in one coordinated effort. Like the Victory Garden movement of a by-gone era, this is a call for eaters all across the country to step up for domestically produced cheese, because if we don’t choose it now, it may be lost forever. The Victory Cheese Box directly supports independent cheesemakers right here in Indiana during this especially critical time.
