Our shop sells (retail & wholesale) high-quality cheese for our international customers in Bangkok. That’s the essence of what we do and we are committed to it. Our passion is your pleasure.
We purchase our authentic products from the in-house Company, Swiss Made Tastes Co., Ltd, which is a Government licensed importer, the first in Bangkok focused on Swiss top-end cheeses only, including exclusive rights to sell some brands in Thailand.
There are many different types of cheese. Some brands are made in big factories using industrial "raw" materials and others are made in countries where they are not originally from. There are some cheese products that are made locally and handcrafted by master cheese makers. Their knowledge is usually handed down from generation to generation. This makes a huge difference between day-to-day food and delicacies. We have always believed in selling the best possible cheese that has been prepared for many months in Switzerland caves from the hands of highly skilled professionals.
Our Other Products
Our clients have asked us to consider buying additional Swiss products such as ice cream, coffee, spices, mayonnaise, cookies, chocolate, and other merchandise items. We are working on that. Our goal is to satisfy all of our customers and we will continue to listen to our customers so that our menu will meet their needs. At this time, we do not offer home delivery but we hope to make this service available in the future.
Our Respect in AOC Certification
AOC stands for "Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée", which translates as "controlled term of origin". This is the French designation for a guarantee of origin, the sign of very special agricultural products.
AOC is the top quality label for local traditional food. It takes years to obtain it, as agreements between producers, Government commissions and Countries are necessary. The origins of AOC date back to the 15th century when the French Roquefort cheese was regulated by a parliamentary decree. Nowadays, this certification is mostly used for wines and food.
In Switzerland, the Federal Office for Agriculture (FOAG) guarantees that all AOC products will be held to a rigorous set of clearly defined standards. This organization stresses that all AOC products must be manufactured in a consistent and traditional manner with ingredients from specifically classified producers in designated geographical areas.
The Swiss AOC certification is granted to 10 different cheeses only, as well as for some other products.
Due to its lean and efficient structure, Swiss Made Tastes buys cheese directly from Switzerland. We purchase our products only from Switzerland and from only the finest expert cheese makers. The cheese is transported exclusively by airplane and requires only 3 days shipping time to arrive in the shop in Bangkok. All certificates such as ISO, HACCP, and IFS are regularly checked and updated. This makes us a unique retail outlet in Thailand.
Our ethical and environmental responsibility
We are committed to doing business responsibly and conducting ourselves in ways that earn the trust and respect of our customers and partners. We have developed strong, long-term relationships with our suppliers that help ensure we are able to buy the highest quality cheese our customers expect from us, respecting the latest advice on energy and water conservation.
