How will the product be delivered?

Cranstons use a tried and tested national food courier. All our meat is expertly packaged to ensure that it stays a fresh as possible on its journey to you.

Cranstons Sausage, Beef Mince, Burgers and Kebabs are either packaged in food-safe polythene bags or on polythene trays and over-wrapped with film. All other products are vacuum packed.

The individual packs are surrounded with refrigerant pads and packed into a strong highly insulated shipping box (double wall corrugated cardboard and high density polystyrene pads).


What shelf life will the product arrive with?

Each product is individually labelled with a use by date. We guarantee all products will arrive with at least 3 days shelf life. Please refer to individual pack labels for details.


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.
