The Cheese Collective is LIVE!


Welcome to The Cheese Collective! We’re so excited that our website is finally live, following months of hard work and anticipation. 

The Cheese Collective is an online cheese subscription service run by Sam Elsdon and Shivali Best, two cheese lovers living in South London. 

Sam and Shivali founded the company having seen the detrimental effects the Covid-19 pandemic had on both cheesemakers and food banks. 

Our premise is simple - each month, our customers will receive a new selection of world class cheeses, with the option to buy one-off boxes if you’re not ready to fully commit.

And for every cheese box you buy, we’ll donate a meal to a local Trussell Trust food bank, so while you’re enjoying your cheese you can know you’ve made one less person hungry.

We only work with award-winning British artisan cheesemakers, and already have a number of exciting partners on board, including:

Alsop & Walker, Sussex

Keen’s Cheddar, Somerset

Connage Dairy, Inverness

Cropwell Bishop Creamery, Nottinghamshire

Appleby Creamery, Cumbria

If you’re a cheesemaker and would like to work with us, please email us at - we’d love to hear from you!

To help our customers to get to know the cheesemakers, our website also contains ‘Meet the Makers’ videos and interviews.

We’d love all the support you can give, whether it’s subscribing to our monthly boxes, buying a one-off box, or simply following us on social media. 

We can’t wait to see The Cheese Collective grow and bring together cheese lovers with a collective conscience. 

Sam and Shivali
