We have researched different methods of packaging to ensure our promise of delivering meat to a high standard when it arrives at your door. We have opted to use both butchers paper and vacuum packing to maintain quality and freshness. Each order will deliver protected in a fully recyclable double walled cardboard carton with insulated paper pads combined with reusable ice packs which will keep the meat cool for up to 48 hours. While the ice packs cannot be recycled, they are encouraged to be reused. Packaging from vacuum packing will need to be disposed of in the general waste.
Storing Your MEAT
While in store we paper wrap the majority of our meat in order to reduce the use of plastic, we have decided to use both paper and vacuum packing for our nationwide delivery orders.
If your meat comes vacuum packed, it can be placed in the refrigerator or freezer straight away. If your meat comes paper wrapped, please remove any paper to avoid deterioration and keep meat on a plate in the refrigerator. Remember to check use by dates. A full fridge may prevent the air in the refrigerate to circulate well and maintain temperature. Ensure frozen meat is fully defrosted in the fridge and cook within 24 hours. Never refreeze raw meat.
