truLOCAL Unboxing - a monthly meat delivery subscription box

truLOCAL is a monthly meat delivery subscription box featured on Dragon’s Den. Each month you will be shipped locally sourced meat products saving you the drive out to a butcher. When subscribing you can select either:

Small box – up to 18 individual portions, $125.00 per box

Regular box – up to 40 individual portions, $249.00 per box

So, if you were to subscribe to the small box, it would break down to $29.06 weekly or for the large box $57.90 which is very affordable for the clean locally sourced meat you will receive. truLocal shipped across Ontario and delivers overnight in a foam cooler filled with dry ice to ensure your delivery stays frozen until you get your order.truLOCAL Unboxing - a monthly meat delivery subscription box

How truLocal works is after you’ve selected the size of the box you want you can then pick the types of meats you want within the box, so you always get exactly what you want! All the various products are worth a different amount of points between 1-5, with the vast majority of the items being 1-3 points. For example, for 1 point you can get either 1 filet mignon, a package of hot Italian sausage, a package of bacon, 2 bone-in skin-on chicken breasts, 2 pork chops, 3-5 wild caught perch fillets, 1 package of lean ground beef, 1 package of turkey bacon, 1 package of ground turkey, 1 package of breakfast sausages, 1 package of garlic sausages or 2 organic turkey breasts.

With the small box you have 9 points to spend while the regular box gives you 20 points. To save time when ordering instead of selecting each item to go into your truLOCAL box you can either select the fan favorites box which will send you a box of the most popular items, or the mix it up box which will give you the most amount of meat for your money.

We loved our first truLOCAL box which made having fresh meat easy and convenient. Our delivery arrived frozen and was filled with excellent cuts of meat. Not only did everything taste outstanding, but we were happy to see they were without additives, GMO free and without preservatives. Another handy feature was the truLOCAL site has the suggested cooking instructions on their website for each of the products they sell.
After our first box, we are excited to order a second one to test out more products like the Buffalo burgers, lamb shank, pork shoulder roast, and some of the prime rib roast.
