This report investigates the supply accessibility and packaging of semi-direct starter cultures from Agroscope, an agricultural research center under the Swiss government, who supplies starter cultures to over 90% of cheesemakers in Switzerland. Our goals were to analyze the current conditions of transportation, storage, and waste management of the product in the Swiss Alps. Through surveys to Alpine cheesemakers and interviews with cheesemaking experts, it was found that the expected barriers in transportation and storage were not prevalent. This project also discusses ways to improve waste management and usability through several proposed redesigned packaging systems, with easily accessible instructions for improving the cheese making process.
