For food that needs to be in your customer’s fridge the next day
When it’s vital that your package arrives with customers first time – trust our new service to deliver by 9am, 10am, noon, or simply next day. The service is designed for transporting fresh meat products, you can be sure that we’re taking the best of care with your products.
Sending fresh meat products?
For safety, you’ll need to make sure you follow these packaging guidelines:
- Vacuum pack the product
- Pack in polystyrene or other leakproof inner first (to stop condensation damaging the outer cardboard box)
- Place in an outer cardboard box
- We’ll provide a label for you to attach stating “Fresh Meat”
Fresh meat can only be delivered on a next day basis (including weekends) and must be able to last for 48 hours in transit.
You’ll need to be an account customer, with a ‘Safeplace’ contract, and be pre-approved to use our perishables delivery service.
