Can I freeze the product?

Cranstons meat can be safely frozen. If you freeze your meat on arrival the pack use by date becomes irrelevant. As a general rule, we would recommend that your freeze our bacon and sausage for a maximum of 3 months, and our fresh meat for a maximum of 6 months. After this period, although still safe to eat the flavour begins to deteriorate.
