West Allis Cheese and Sausage Shoppe

Cheese and Sausage Shipping Information

Is it safe to ship cheese & sausage?

  • The tradition of making cheese was started many, many years ago as a way to preserve milk in warm climates and also to make it portable. Properly sealed, most cheese can be left at room temperature for two to four days.
  • We take every precaution to make sure your product is received in the freshest form. All of our freshly cut cheese is vacuum sealed as soon as it's cut to block out air and moisture. Orders are not filled until the day they are shipped out. During warm months, we use icepacks as needed and require faster shipping methods. The icepacks will last most or all of the way. If your cheese arrives warm, don't worry. Placing it in the door or a drawer of your refrigerator will bring it back to its natural texture.
  • Soft cheeses, such as Brie, do not tolerate warm temperatures as well. For this reason, we limit the sale of soft cheeses to certain times of the year. When we do offer it during the holidays, make sure to check us out!
  • Like cheese, old fashioned sausages are also made to withstand warmer temperatures and will be shipped in accordance with cheese products. Meats, such as bacon, are vacuum sealed and smoked to insure freshness.
  • If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 414-543-4230.
