WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Our offices are in Hermanus, from where we manage three online stores. But we work countrywide with local family farmers.
Our meat is packed fresh and then frozen to ensure that the quality is correct, and the cold chain is never broken. All our fresh produce are handled and transported at carefully regulated temperatures to ensure that the products maintain their freshness and integrity. Once a delivery has been made, the responsibility is with the customer to ensure that the products are refrigerated/frozen immediately and stored correctly. The cold chain is never broken at any point.
