Online meat delivery has had a difficult time getting going. Many people in the UK have been reluctant to purchase meat online and have it delivered to their door. The general thought when you consider meat delivery is the risk you take posting meat through the mail. Some people are under the impression that the meat is delivered like a letter, rather than as a food product. For these reasons, meat delivery has been slow to catch on but today increasing numbers of people are choosing to buy their meat from online retailers and have it delivered to their door. If you are considering whether you should give online meat delivery a try, consider this list of advantages.
1. Quality. You can find higher quality, better meat online than at many local and national retailers. You may have cut down on meat consumption after discovering that the meat from supermarkets or the butcher is not good enough for the price you pay. Online retailers provide meat that is often a cut above the rest. It is fresh, carefully prepared, and expertly selected.
2. Convenience. Of course, it goes without saying that when you get your meat delivered it’s one less thing you have to pick up at the store. You simply take the parcel, unpack it and put the meat in the fridge or freezer. Most meat delivered by online retailers is suitable for home freezing so you can order in bulk and store in the freezer until you need it. You can choose the meat you want in the comfort of your own home without having to wear yourself out walking to the store or spending time at the supermarket trying to decide which cuts of meat are best.
3. Specialist meat. You may be looking for types of meat that are not available in traditional stores, for example organic meat or meat from exotic animals like ostriches. You can have Halal steaks and other types of Halal meat delivered direct to your door and you don’t have to search all over for a supplier in your neighbourhood.
4. Price. Meat online may be cheaper than you’d find in the stores, but you can also make savings by looking out for promotions and by choosing the most economical cuts on offer. When you order over a certain amount you can also take advantage of free delivery.
But you may be wondering how safe it is to eat meat that has been mailed to you. Meat is delivered in specialist packaging – not just in envelopes or as a parcel. The online retailers have their own specialist coolers and ice systems that keep the meat cool all through the delivery process. The meat arrives chilled and not frozen. Of course, you do need to choose a supplier that is professional and reliable in order to make sure that the meat is safe and tasty.
