    Why is there no packaging returns service?
    Offering this service would not only be unhygienic but we calculated the carbon footprint of returning used packaging to be higher than if you recycled it. Despite the current trends in this sector, it seemed performative of us to simply gloss over this fact.

    Please ensure you are available to receive your order!
    Once you have received your order, we recommend removing meat from the shipping box and storing in your fridge or freezer as soon as possible.

    Please note...
    ...all orders are subject to stock availability and customers should note that in adverse weather conditions, deliveries may be delayed. In the rare event there is any issue with your delivery, we will do everything we can to make it right - we value and seek long-term relationships with our customers.
