About Us

CHEESE IMPORTER, WHOLESALER, EDUCATOR

Essex Street Cheese Co. is a cheese importer and wholesaler that focuses on a limited number of perfectly ripened classic cheeses, specially selected at the source. We sell great cheese to distributors and, in some cases, directly to retailers.

We are cheesemongers ourselves. We offer cheesemonger training and education both on-site and with trips to the source of the cheese, in France, Holland, Italy and Spain.
