ABOUT US

There's no need to brave the supermarket anymore. The Meat Box delivers NZ's best meat right to your doorstep.

Here at The Meat Box, we’re committed to making it easy for busy Kiwis to enjoy the tastiest, highest quality meat that New Zealand’s best farms have to offer.


Lisa & Rick started The Meat Box after struggling with that modern work/life balance - finding the time to catch up with friends, work hard and stay fit, while still wanting to make the best and freshest food choices for their family.


We’ve been New Zealand’s trusty online butcher for over five years now. We deliver the freshest, tastiest meat all over the country for those of us who really care about our food and where it comes from.


We work with farmers who are all about rearing the most delicious meat possible. Most of them are locally family owned and they all care about the highest standards of animal welfare, just like us.


With The Meat Box, there’s no need to brave the supermarket anymore. Whether you’re after superbly tender beef, succulent lamb or versatile chicken, we’ve got you sorted. We cut fresh to order, pack chilled, pop in some easy to follow recipe cards, and deliver overnight.


It’s as simple as picking a ‘ready to go’ box, or building a box that works for you. No contracts, no fuss, just great tasting meat to put on the barbie or roast in the oven, whenever you want it.


And if you need anything, give us a call on 0800 MEATBOX or send us an email at info@themeatbox.co.nz and we’ll be there to help because we’re committed to being NZ’s best online butcher.

Quick and super simple

Better, Fresher, Easier, Convenient-ah-er, (ok, we ran outa words that end in ‘er’) but you get what we are saying. These are all words we like to use to describe ourselves, and for good reason, because we know you want, what you've been missing…
