What is our Cheese Analytical program?
Our proficiency team prepares a sample of Cheese (see below for specific cheese type) and ships them to all of our participants for the analytical testing. Once the testing is completed by each participant - results are sent to our team here at Cherney where they are analyzed and placed into a statistical data sheet. We then notify all participants that had unsatisfactory results (based on the recent round of testing) and generate reports.
