One of the most common complaints among Torontonians today is about how unbelievably busy life in this bustling metropolis has become.
Between the pressures or work, family, and leisure, people from Etobicoke to Scarborough and everywhere in between are finding they have less time to get everything done — which is one of the reasons why transit is consistently a hot-button political issue in election after election.
It’s also one of the reasons why Torontonians are expanding their horizons when it comes to shopping for groceries.
Alternative grocery delivery services that help Torontonians cut down on the time they spend on streetcars, busses, and the subway are becoming more and more popular every year, and the range of options is constantly expanding. Some specialized services are even making it possible for shoppers to get meat delivered straight to their door anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area.
How Fresh Meat Delivery Works
Grocery delivery is nothing new in Toronto, but modern delivery services that can delivery products to your house or apartment at any time of the day, regardless of whether or not anyone is home to receive them, are still somewhat novel.
This is especially true of meat, which spoils easily and often requires greater care to deliver properly.
But the latest fresh meat delivery services are set up to let you order a box of your favourite cuts right to your home. Because these services use dry ice to keep the boxes refrigerated, the meat will stay nice and cold all day, saving you the trouble of having to be home to receive your order.
Best of all, because dry ice evaporates rather than melting, you don’t even have to worry about the box getting soggy and difficult to handle.
Delivery Brings Local Ontario Meat Right to Your Door
There are many reasons why you might want to get meat delivered to your home in Toronto but one of the most overlooked is that meat delivery services can actually help you get better quality meat than you will find at your local grocery store or butcher.
Services like truLOCAL work in partnership with Ontario farmers and suppliers committed to sustainable agriculture so that you can get high quality Ontario beef, pork, lamb, chicken, and buffalo, and a variety of wild-caught fish from sustainable fisheries on the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic Oceans.
This means that Torontonians who are passionate about ethical food don’t need to battle traffic or multiple transfers to get to a sustainable butcher shop: they can simply set up a biweekly, triweekly, or monthly subscription to get regular deliveries of their favourite cuts.
According to a new study from Ryerson University, Toronto is the fastest growing city in the United States or Canada. With more than 77,000 new residents arriving in 2018 alone, Toronto isn’t going to become less congested anytime soon.
But with convenient, and sustainable fresh meat delivery, freeing up a couple of extra hours every week is easier than it might seem.
