Recycling is important & we are always looking at new ways to reduce our impact on the environment through new packaging or using less. With this in mind, we only use clear recyclable pouches for all our chicken products. The Whole Chicken is packed in singles for easy storage at home.
One of the benefits of the packaging is the protection of your Whole Chicken in storage & delivery to ensure that it reaches your door in perfect condition. The chickens are vacuum-sealed within minutes of production to retain all its natural flavour & moisture in for your cooks. Freezing the Whole Chicken straight after sealing, to -18°C means that they stay as fresh from the moment they were produced.
We pack these so you can keep them frozen without the risk of spoiling the meat, & when you are bringing the meat up to room temperature, to prevent them from drying out. You can store these in the vacuum-sealed packs as they will be as fully protected from any other foods tainting the flavour of the meat. Please recycle the clear pouches responsibly at home & help us for a greener future.
