Our Packaging

All of our produce is hand cut to order, and vacuum packed just prior to being sent for delivery.  We vacuum pack our meat because it ensures a clean, fuss free delivery process, with the meat in an ideal state for freezing once it has arrived.

Labelling

All of our produce is labelled with the weight, cut type, ingredients (if applicable), and use by date.

Local Deliveries (Free Deliveries)

If you are within our free delivery radius, your order will be delivered in one of our own refrigerated vehicles, and therefore the packaging is not insulated, which is one of the reasons we are able to maintain free delivery for our local customers.  Should you not be for your scheduled delivery, please give us a leave safe location, with a cool box so that your order remains cold.

Postal Deliveries (Paid Deliveries)

In our search for the perfect postal delivery packaging, we didn’t have to go far, just 19 miles in fact.  That’s because on our door step we have Wool Cool, who have pioneered a wonderfully sustainable, but also highly effective insulated packaging delivery system utilising the natural thermal properties of sheeps’ wool.  Wool Cool packaging not only performs better than its man made counterparts (no surprise here), but it also ticks a lot of the environmental boxes too.  We use Wool Cool packaging for our national deliveries (using APC).  Our local deliveries are not packed in insulated packaging unless requested at checkout.

Reusing your Wool Cool packaging

The sheeps’ wool liner from your delivery box can be repurposed in a number of ways.  Use it to line a jute bag and you’ve got a ready made insulated picnic hamper, use it to insulate your outside taps from the icy freezing temperatures during winter, pop it in your cat’s basket for a snuggly warm blanket, or use it to line your hanging baskets to retain moisture and defeat frost.  Those are just a few of our suggestions, but there are endless possibilities for us all to do our bit.  If you happen to come up with a novel use for your packaging we’d love to hear it @ hello@dunwoodfarm.co.uk
