Choice Meats Lockdown Survival Pack

These are trying times for us all, but here at Choice Meats, we are always trying to make things a little better. With that in mind, and so that we can continue to deliver quickly and efficiently to our valued customers, we have created the ‘Survival Pack’.

To help us with our logistics, at this time, unfortunately, we will be unable to deliver any other items than the Survival Pack and the add on’s listed here.

We appreciate that not everyone wants all the items on the SURVIVAL PACK and with this in mind we can offer the following changes only:- 

Any beef item in the pack can be swapped for any other beef item in the pack.

Any pork item in the pack (inc. bacon & sausage) can be swapped for any other pork item in the pack. (Or swapped for 2 chicken fillets).

The whole chicken can be swapped for an extra 4 chicken fillets.

Plus in the coming days we will offer some extra add on packs, that have been requested.

From Wednesday 1st April onwards however, the Survival pack with permitted changes and the add on’s, (which can be ordered on their own as long as the value is £30 or more), will be the only items available for delivery.

How to order

Please continue to contact us here or on Facebook with your order and please include your name, full address including postcode and a contact telephone number. A member of staff will then ring you to take a card payment over the phone before your items are delivered. Please note if we are unable to contact you for payment your order will not be dispatched on that delivery vehicle and it may be the following day before we can re-schedule your delivery.

The shop will be open as normal with an IN & OUT system and sanitizer on entry, and please take note of our SOCIAL DISTANCING SIGNS. Here at the shop you will be able to purchase any other items you may require. This also Includes the collection of SURVIVAL PACKS & ADD ON'S.

We will of course keep the shop open and deliveries going as long as our dedicated staff continue to keep supporting us and our community.
