About Pong Cheese
Two friends originating in Somerset, an area known for its artisan production, created the company through a common love of cheese. Success grew from their substantial background in online marketing, running several agencies that aided the online launch of companies such as Oli and Waitrose. As well as this, one of the founders happened to be a chef and cheese connoisseur with over 10 years behind him serving the likes of the UK government in particular. The company recognises the commonality that cheese is only offered at the end of meals as an alternative to dessert – and strive to combat this! Despite almost every household in the UK being cheese consumer of some sort, the amount consumed annually is only a fraction compared to most European diets. As a result, Pong strives to change this by providing a source of fine quality cheese that are available for consumption 24/7.

Awful customer service After my cheese box not having been delivered I rang them. I then got the following email:
Sorry to hear youve not got your Pong box.
We've got it as signed for by a 'A Jay' but having checked the geo-track of where the courier left it, it looks like its at 7 xxxxxx Road! We're so sorry about this - we're investigating as to why this has happened. The road is just over xxxxx Park from you so it might be easier if you could go and collect it? Otherwise the couriers collecting it and bringing it to you might take until Monday or Tuesday. If this is a problem we'll send a new box for you early next week
Attached is a photo of the door and the signature at no 7. It has a white door"
The address was actually 90 minutes walk away. That I was expected during lockdown to knock on a strangers door to retrieve a box of cheese is ridiculous. I sent a chase up email 1 week ago and am still awaiting a response
