Meat delivery is not just a trend, it’s revolutionising the meat industry. So why are so many people choosing to have their meat delivered straight to their door?
Food trends, like fashion trends, come and go like the wind. Fusion cuisine, deconstructed dishes, avocado everything; these things are huge one minute and gone the next. Surely meat delivery is just another fad people will be obsessed with for a time, before inevitably heading back to the butcher’s shop?
Absolutely not. Unlike other food trends of the past, the fresh meat delivery market is only gaining momentum. It is the meat industry re-imagined for the digital age. For the first time, farmers can offer people far and wide the opportunity to have their best steaks, sausages and other prime cuts delivered straight to their door. And the people are more than happy to take them up on that offer.
So what are the benefits of meat delivery? Let’s take a look…
By buying your meat direct from the supplier, you are effectively cutting out the middleman like a bit of unwanted offal. This means fewer additional costs, while also ensuring that the meat you get is fresher than what you can find on supermarket shelves.
Many meat delivery companies also offer deals on bigger purchases, and discounts on certain orders. The Dorset Meat Company, for example, provides their loyal customers with frequent offers and discounts, such as 10% off their second order.
Quick and easy
Finding the time to go to the local butchers or supermarket can be tricky, especially if you’re juggling a career or family, or find it difficult to leave the house for health reasons. By ordering meat online, you can save yourself both time and the cost of travel.
Buying meat online also eliminates the risk of trekking all the way to the local shop to buy a particular cut, only to find it isn’t in stock. How many of us have struggled to find meat for a BBQ on a sunny Bank Holiday weekend, after discovering that a hundred other families have had the same idea as us? Ordering online enables you to choose the cuts you want, as well as a specific delivery date, guaranteeing your family, friends and guest will be well fed. All the fresh meat you could possibly want can be accessed via your desktop or phone.
Customise your order
Some meat is easier to find than others. Chicken legs and pork sausages are found in every supermarket, but more specific cuts or animals might require you to find a specialist butcher in your local area, and even then there is no guarantee you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for.
An advantage to buying online is the sheer range of choices available. A more exact selection than you could ever find in a single butchers shop or supermarket is just a few clicks away. And not only that, but meat delivery companies can even give you the choice of building your own meat box, or selecting a pre-arranged box tailored for specific needs. Combine all manner of meat for a tasty variety, or choose from boxes like the ‘Family BBQ Meat Box’, or ‘Student Survival Meat Box’.
