Whilst the number of meat box delivery services in the UK is seeing a healthy rise, they predominently focus on bridging the gap between the butcher and the consumer. While such meat box delivery services are valuable in ensuring quality of produce, they still do little in terms of traceability — i.e. truly knowing where the meat you eat comes from.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recently revealed that a fifth of their meat samples in 2017 from Supermarkets, Restaurants and Processing plants contained unspecified animals' DNA. As a result there is a critical need to establish an accessible link between consumers and farmers so the former can be informed on how the cow from which their beef has come was reared, what it had been fed, and the life it had led. Only then can the consumer make truly informed purchasing decisions regarding his/her food consumption.
At Buyacow.uk, we connect you to local, ethical farmers who rear grass-fed & free-range cattle with no hormones, chemicals or preventative antibiotics. These in turn produce beef that is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids. Because we connect you directly to the farmer and the animal your beef comes from, you can enjoy that Delicious Sunday Roast with some of the most premium meat avaiable in the UK, without any of uncertainty about what kind of meat it is and how it got to your plate!
