Storing your meat

Warwicks Butchers | Belfast | Storing your meat

Wondering how to store your meat when you get it home? Here's our advice:

How soon should you use your meat once received?

We recommend, for most Warwicks Butchers meat, that you use it within three days from receipt as there are no preservatives used.

Vacuum packaged meat

Optionally we offer a vacuum packaging service, which increases the shelf life to ten days from receipt (in line with revised government guidelines last year).

Freezing your meat

As every order is cut or made freshly it will also freeze excellently. If the intention is to freeze items then do so as soon as possible. The regular bagged and vacuum packaged items are suitable for freezing in so items can be placed into the freezer the way they are and are safe to freeze for up to 12 months. 

If you are in any doubt please feel free to send us a message or contact us.
