Before it reaches the table all cheese goes through a maturing stage, when it is stored to ripen and allow the flavours to develop. That can be a problem for a small-scale artisan producer who may not have the storage space that is needed. The Cheese Hub provides that storage space, freeing the cheesemaker from spending time and money on solving those problems. Tier upon tier of maturing cheese is stored in temperature controlled units using maturing techniques like 'cave aged', 'dry rind', 'oiled skin' and waxing. Later, the cheese is cut, packaged, distributed and sold, all steps that are vital but which, without The Cheese Hub, might divert the artisan producer from the essential job of making cheese.​
