Meat & Cleaver: Packaged for freshness


Your meat order will be securely sealed and delivered in a temperature controlled polystyrene cool-box, and your meat is packed along with specially designed ice packs.

Your meat will be kept below 4°C from the time we cut it, until you receive it, so it will always arrive fresh and in perfect condition.

We promise your complete satisfaction. That is our commitment to you.

Our insulated expanded polystyrene box is leak proof and sturdy and designed to keep the inside cool.

Our ice packs are made with a water-based gel, which is frozen and packed with the meat. This will keep the meat at the correct temperature for up to 48 hours.

When the ice does melt, it stays as a gel, which prevents the delivery becoming wet.
