The online route to buy fish and meat…
If groceries and vegetables can be ordered online, why not fish and meat? Yes, e-commerce has reached fish and meat retailing with residents of a few cities like Mumbai, Pune, Chennai and Bangalore being able to order fresh fish and meat thanks to offline sellers who have come online or online marketplaces who have tied up with local farms and vendors.
It is to be noted that prices of meat and especially fish may vary across seasons. Also, online suppliers accept orders subject to a minimum order value
Quality and convenience are assured…
Fish is landed on the beach early in the morning and it is sorted and packed in ice immediately. The supply is made to customers who have ordered online 24 hours in advance. This ensures that fish received by customers is in fresh condition, without any compromise on taste. Supply is also made in the form of sliced pieces or fillets. Popular varieties are prawns, lobsters, mackerels, sardines, red snappers, salmon, sole, pomfret, king fish etc.
Online meat supplies are gaining ground due to issues like the hassle of going to butcher as well as increasing awareness of quality, hygiene and the source of meat. While meat sellers mainly offer mutton and chicken, some suppliers do provide cold cuts and ready-to-eat products as well as other meats like turkey and pork.
It is to be noted that from the time of slaughter till 4 hours meat can be consumed without any temperature control. After 4 hours, meat needs to be stored at temperature range of 0 to 5 degrees and online meat suppliers ensure the same.
