After being flash-frozen and vacuum-sealed, your order is place with care into an insulated, recyclable cooler. It’s then packed with dry ice to keep it frozen during shipping and delivery. By freezing and vacuum sealing, you’re ensured that the meats that you receive will retain their freshness and flavor for up to a full year. We ship via UPS for reliability. When your order arrives, your food should still be cool with little (or no) dry ice left.
