Hey MMC79! What cheese - hard, soft, cream cheese? What packaging size and shelf life? We're producing cream cheese, shelf life 32 days, pack. size 10 kg mostly. The retention sample size is 90ml: the same as we send to the lab for testing. We retain 3 90ml vials from each batch, for the shelf life period + 5-7 days.

Cool.

 

And Retention Time ??

 

I'm curious, how much difference between Batch Date and Sample Date ?


Kind Regards,

Cheese needs time to age no?  So it is probably dependent on that

 

I worked at a cheese house a lifetime ago.........QA sampled the incoming milk but the cheese was sampled post age in the 600 lbs blocks, and then again as it went down the packaging line
