What will the meat look like when it arrives?

This is an example of how our meat is packaged.

The meat is delivered by us to you in our refrigerated truck. All the steak cuts of meats arrive to you free flow and frozen and individually wrapped and packed for your convenience. This makes it very easy for you to select how many pieces you require for a specific meal, whether you need one for yourself or 6 for the family. All Roasts and Silverside are medium in size and are packaged in sealed and labelled bags.

All the meat is packaged in cardboard boxes similar in size to a standard filing box therefore making it easy to fit in a freezer and access at a future date.

How long will it take for the meat to arrive and who delivers it?

When you contact us to place your order we will be able to advise the dates that we are next delivering meat orders in your area in our Chiller Truck. We personally deliver your meat order in our Free Delivery Area’s.
