Our Delivery Partners
Our main delivery partner is DPD Local. As we’re delivering fresh meat, we can only utilise their Next Day service. This means it is collected from us at 5 pm and delivered to you the very next day.
DPD have invested heavily in their infrastructure and technology. For this reason, they are able to provide an unrivalled level of service for our customers.
Not only that but they are dedicated to reducing their carbon emission by implementing electric vehicles.
For our Saturday deliveries and to take care of our extra volumes, we have APC overnight. They provide a very similar service to DPD local with 1-hour timeslots provided to our customers and up to the minute communication.
They specialise in next day services and so they were the obvious choice as our secondary courier. Delivering fresh meat means that we can only use a next-day service to deliver our parcels.
We can deliver our products to addresses within mainland UK. We are unable to deliver to Northern Ireland, any islands, or isles. Furthermore, there are certain postcodes within Scotland that our courier DPD are unable to provide their next-day service. You can view the DPD services available in Scotland or refer to our postcode list below.

From Meat in the Box
When you order with us, we like to keep you updated with your order progress. Once your order is placed we’ll send you an order confirmation. Here you can check all of your order details and ensure your shipping information is correct. Then, the day before your order is due for delivery, we’ll generate your shipping label and send your details to DPD. You will be notified by email once this has been completed.
DPD will then collect your order from us and scan your parcel(s) into their tracking system. They will send a text or email notifying you that they have your parcel and that it will be delivered the next day. And finally, on the morning of delivery, you will get another notification providing a 1-hour or 2-hour slot.
If you’re experiencing any difficulty with your order or things just don’t seem right with DPD, we recommend tracking your parcel first and then contacting DPD.
Track Your Parcel
You can find your tracking number on your dispatch email or DPD notifications. Be sure to check any junk folders. You can also find it within your account’s order page: open the # link or ‘View’ link next to the relevant order.
When you call from the number provided during checkout on Meat in the Box you will get an automated update on your parcel. We recommend contacting DPD and not our customer service team if you have a DPD issue. We will call the same number as below but it will take us longer to find out the same information as we are not the recipient.
