Meet the geeks

Our crack team of geeks making the cheesegeek world go around. We're a growing team, small but mighty, working across all areas of the bizz that we call cheese from Operations and Customer Service to Marketing and Corporates. We like to consider ourselves disruptors, whether that's revolutionising the way that cheese is packaged or simply breaking the boundaries of how much cheese can be consumed in a day.

Meet the geeks

Edward

The Cheese Geek

Geek No.1

The mothership. A cheese overlord. Edward can usually be found around the fridges snaffling the latest finds despite this not being his role. When he’s put the cheese down for longer than 5 minutes, he shapes the strategy and sets the overall direction for the business.

Tina you might just be our favourite Geek...

What makes us different?

We’re Ambitious

Across the industry, our cheese, our service, our tech.... we strive to be the best.

We’re Responsible

For cheesemakers, for our customers, for our environment

We’re Together

We love sharing the cheese knowledge. It's why we're here and unites us as a company.

We’re Passionate

Enthusiasm reigns. Whether it's cheese, CO2 emissions or our tech.

We’re Disruptive

We're proud to be part of the cheese community but we're here to shake it up.

Join the cheesegeek team

The self styled Modern Cheesemonger, we operate purely online sending out recklessly good looking boxes filled with award winning cheese. Billed as the Netflix of Fromage, our sweet spot is subscriptions where we’re able to lead merry customers on a journey through the cheese universe.

Whilst we’re official ‘cheese heads’, in reality we dance on the line between cheese and technology. Great cheese has been around for donkey’s years - but we’re now taking it to the masses with some of the smartest tech around. We’ve rather handily coined this ‘Cheesetech’. Think proprietary software to allocate cheese...and the world’s first cheese purchasing app.


We’ve grown fast since starting out from our own kitchen just over 4 year ago. Now based in Raynes Park, we’re sending out literally tonnes of cheese each month - enough to class us in the high growth startup category. But we’re not stopping there. 82% of the UK population eat cheese each week...we’re on a mission to get more of these people eating better cheese.

Simply put, our ambition is to be game-changers, and to take cheese retail to a new level. Think cheese, think cheesegeek.

Cheese Whisperers (Cutting, Wrapping and Packing)

At cheese HQ we have orders going out at quite a clip so we're on a mission to unearth some champion cheesemongers, or as we call them, cheese whisperers.

Why Whisperers? Because in a short space of time (it might be already), cheese will become your best friend. You’ll quickly find yourself whispering sweet nothings to a Tunworth or even scribbling love notes to a Comte. This is the sort of love and care for cheese that we’re looking for. Once you’re in that special relationship place, your primary focus will be cutting, wrapping and packing cheese..

How to pair Cheese and Wine...when the Geeks met the Grapes!

Ever wondered how to pair cheese and wine? Well wonder no more. We had Fred and Clémence from Honest Grapes join our team for a mammoth tasting.

Carbon Offsetting - Sustainability

Carbon offsetting means buying carbon credits equivalent to the carbon you consume. For every tonne of C02 we emit from dairy production, we are removing more than a tonne elsewhere.

Seasonality of Cheese

Cheese changes with the seasons. Just like fruit and veg, the flavour of cheese can completely change depending on the time of year.
