How we cut & package our meat is very important to us because it will give a better result in the kitchen at home or restaurant. All our preparation of our meat is done in clean, temperature controlled cutting rooms, the meat is produced & packed within a few minutes to make the product as fresh, moist & have the best natural flavour possible.
The pork tenderloins are vacuum sealed into individual clear recyclable pouches because the vacuum process sucks the natural juices into the meat to keep it moist & flavourful & the pouch keeps the shape of the fillet. The speed & efficiency of our process helps prevent the natural bacteria in meat from growing & this gives a much longer shelf life.
By packing them this way makes them easy to freeze & store. The recyclable clear pouches are one way we can reduce our carbon foot print by our online customers recycling responsibly at home.
