Frequently Asked Questions
Is your packaging recyclable?
Wool is a remarkable insulator when combined with ice, keeping the contents of the box cool and fresh. The wool is compostable and will biodegrade. Please recycle the cardboard. As with our other ice cells, please reuse, or cut open and put the contents into general waste.

How will my order arrive?
All our meat is cut fresh and packed to order at our shop in Newport Pagnell, just for you. When you receive your order from Butchers Fridge, it will arrive in one of our cardboard boxes, which is made from recycled cardboard and is 100% biodegradable. All the boxes we send out need to maintain a food safe chilled temperature, to do this you will receive ice packs within your meat box. These are totally food safe and can also be re frozen to use again. We vacuum pack almost everything we supply; this keeps the dry aged meat perfect and allows for the maximum life to the product. You will love it because it allows you to use just what you need and leave the rest for another day. It is also great for allowing you to freeze a specific cut for later on.
On the outside of every packet which you receive, you will also find details of the product, the use by date and any allergens. Full details of all the ingredients and allergens can be found on our website on the specific product pages.
where can i find the ingredients & nutritional information?
The Ingredients can be found on the product page on our website, this will also include allergens. Allergens can also be found on the product labels when they arrive.
Is your meat organic?
Organic is not one of our sourcing credentials. Our main sourcing criteria is well farmed, well finished, breeded meat from in or around Buckinghamshire area and occasionally outside of this county if we find the right supply.
However, our farmers do farm to organic standards but without the ‘official’ accreditation.
Do your farmers use antibiotics?
We do not routinely administer antibiotics, the only exception would be where veterinary intervention is specifically required for the welfare of an individual animal. Luckily, this is extremely rare due to the healthy and natural ways the livestock is reared and cared for.
Is any of your meat halal?
The animals we source our meat from a Butchers Fridge are not religiously slaughtered.
There is fluid in the vacuum sealed packaging with the meat. What should I do?
You can cook and enjoy the meat as normal. We pack all of our produce fresh after having been prepared by hand. On occasion, moisture may leak from the meat into the watertight packaging. This is completely natural, and you can simply wash this liquid down the sink when you’re ready to open it. We do not under any circumstances soak our meat in water prior to packaging.
