The practically rigid but thin structure of the bandage and shipping-case provides eftlcient means for protecting the cheese in transportation and otherwise, while the weight of the article and the space required for its shipment are so lessened as to materially decrease the cost of transportation, as well as the manufacture of the cheese.
