So, just how will your F&Co box arrive?
All of our meat is cut fresh and packed to order at our hub in
Ripon, just for you.
When you receive your order from Farmison & Co, it will
arrive in one of our cardboard boxes, which is made from recycled
cardboard and is 100% biodegradable. Once you open your meat box
you will find a cool box made out of moulded foam, these are
extremely versatile and have a multitude of usages.
All of the boxes we send out need to maintain a food safe
chilled temperature, to do this you will receive ice packs within
your meat box. These are totally food safe and again have a
multitude of usages as detailed below. To dispose, simply drain the
liquid into the bin, and pop the plastic into recycling.
We vacuum pack almost everything we supply, this keeps the dry
aged meat perfect and allows for the maximum life to the product.
You will love it because it allows you to use just what you need
and leave the rest for another day. It's also great for allowing
you to freeze a specific cut for later on.
On the outside of every packet which you receive, you will also
find details of the product, the use by date and any allergens.
Full details of all the ingredients and allergens can be found on
our website on the specific product pages.
Some More Detail on the Packaging Which We Use
wool cool (eco packaging only)
This is felted sheep's wool which is washed, scoured then sealed
within recyclable polyethylene wrap. Wool is a by product of the
sheep industry, and wool packaging is a fantastic way of reducing
waste. The wool liner can be reused, disposed of, or composted,
with the wool releasing valuable nutrients back into soil.
All of the cardboard boxes that we have to use to send your
order are biodegradable, and 100% recyclable. Our boxes are made
from a material that is:
FSC certified - Sustainably sourced
Made from recycled materials
Once you have finished using your box it can be recycled or
The ice cells we use are the strongest, purest, cleanest and
safest Ice Packs available. The unique gel formula ensures they
stay frozen for much longer using an FSA & FDA approved
non-toxic polymer that is completely food safe. The gel is mixed
using highly purified water that has been through a 6 stage
filtration process and UV sterilisation.
We suggest you keep them in your freezer, they are perfect for
keeping things cold when you have a picnic or a bbq.
If you wish to safely dispose of them, simply cut open with a
pair of scissors and put the liquid inside into general waste. The
other packaging can go into the recycling bin.
Our cool boxes are made of moulded foam. These are 100%
recyclable, and are 98% air. Once compressed down, these boxes are
the size and depth of a sheet of A4 paper. You can check with your
local Council if they accept polystyrene for collection or go to
eps.co.uk for a list of recycling centres and more information
about the material used.
The boxes can be reused at home in a variety of ways. You can
use them for cool boxes, planters for seedlings, and even
We are delighted to be moving the trays which we use to pack our
products, to ones which are fully sustainable. Our trays, which we
use, are new to the market and are widely recyclable. They use 100%
recycled material in their production and can be recycled over and
over again, what is known as a circular product. Their natural
colour tones are derived from the 100% recycled materials they
produced from. This also means they are perfect for detection and
mechanically sorting. Simply wash them our once used and pop them
in your recycling bin.
All of the jars which we supply are wrapped in a protective
bubble wrap for protection during transport. The jars and metal
lids are all suitable recycling or reusing around the home, simply
give them a rinse out once empty.
Vacuum Pac Bags
We are delighted to say that there are some great advances
emerging within this area of food packaging. Our primary lookout is
always to ensure that all our of the meat we supply is food safe
and reaches you in perfect tip-top condition, whilst achieving an
optimum best before date. We are continually testing new materials
and hope to be using vacuum bags across our range which can be
recycled very shortly.
If your order arrives in one of our cool boxes, we will add
additional insulation through the use of wood wool. This is an eco
friendly product and is completely biodegradable.
