Meatworx FAQs






These are just a few of the most asked questions. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any other information.


How long do you hang your beef?

How it is hung is just as important as for how long it hangs for. Your carcass is carefully cooled down before entering the chiller to maximize tenderness. The carcass will then hang in the chiller until processing can take place anywhere between 3-15 days depending on requirements and/or requests.

The ageing process varies between cuts of meat. We recommend hanging your beef up to 7 days, and ageing your steaks for 4 weeks from slaughter date. A detailed explanation of this process can be found here: carcass hanging/ageing debunked

What does ethics in butchery mean? 

For us, ethics has multiple meanings. From the slaughterer adhering to morally and legal requirements to the processing of the carcass treating the animal with respect it deserves. For you as the customer we have software and processes in place that will weigh and track your animal throughout the whole process, eliminating any chance of 'lost' product.

Why do you vacuum pack all your meat? 

Vacuum packing avoids dehydration and freezer burn, maximizes space in your freezer, and gives meat a longer shelf life which in return avoids wastage. Frozen, vacuum-sealed food can last an excess of 2 years. Vacuum sealing holds in the moisture, juices and flavours of the meat - you will notice a difference in taste.
