Why Buy Frozen Meat?

May 7, 2024

At eatTelfit, sustainability is a key focus for our online butchery. We are proponents of the remarkable benefits of buying frozen meat so why buy frozen meat instead of fresh? Many people are hesitant to purchase frozen meat, but there are actually key several benefits in doing so, both for you and our planet. We'll explore why buying frozen meat can be a smart choice.

Extended Shelf Life

One of the main advantages of buying frozen meat is the extended shelf life it offers. When our meat is frozen, it can last for up to a year without spoiling, vs around 10 days for fresh. This way you can stock up on your meat when it's at its very best and is great for those who don't have time to shop for fresh meat regularly.


Buying frozen meat is also incredibly convenient. You can simply store it in your freezer until you're ready to use it. To defrost your meat is also incredibly simple. Either simply leave it in the fridge overnight or submerge you vacuum bag in cold water to defrost quicker. 


Frozen meat is often more cost-effective than fresh meat. We can limit waste allowing us to charge less for our produce whilst still enjoying our high-quality meat. Plus, you can buy in bulk and freeze what you don't immediately need.

Quality and Nutrition

Contrary to popular belief, frozen meat can be more nutritious and just as high-quality as when fresh. Freezing our meat at the peak of its freshness helps lock in nutrients in our grass fed beef and lamb and maintains the natural flavours. This means you can enjoy delicious, nutritious meals with frozen meat.

Reduced Food Waste

By buying frozen meat, we can reduce our food waste. Since frozen meat has a longer shelf life, you're less likely to let it go off before you can use it. This can stop us wasting money and reduce environmental impact. In the UK up to 40% of our food gets wasted and we are on a mission to change this. We want to prove that hit can be possible for meat to be sustainable and eatTelfit to be the most ethical butcher in the UK

With its extended shelf life, convenience, cost-effectiveness, preservation of quality, alongside reducing our food waste, buying frozen meat is a no brainer for households everywhere and we hope the future.
