We’ve seen a lot of meal-kit services launched in these past few years. Despite this fact, we know absolutely no one who uses meal kits. Maybe it’s just us.
But a recently launched meat subscription service called Karv has definite potential to catch on, differing from your typical meal-kit-in-the-mail through superior meats and a no-waste philosophy.
Karv sends monthly packages of frozen meats, all sourced from U.S. farms, to its customers. The pork is always heritage. The beef is always 100% grass-fed-and-finished Angus. And the chicken is always organic free-range.
Freezing the meat means you don’t have to use all your ingredients before the next shipment comes, a common predicament for users of meal-kits, farm boxes and anything else involving regular deliveries of perishable items.
And it’s not just the meat that is saved from sudden spoil and disposal. The corn-based packaging that surrounds each Karv shipment can be dissolved harmlessly in your bathtub or used to water your plants.
Of course, if you’re looking for more of a full entrée experience, recipes are included and oven-ready add-ons can be obtained, such as kimchi-stuffed beef and pork porchetta, which can all be cooked in 35 minutes or less.
But the real promise here is a steady supply of high-quality meats that arrive regularly at your door, producing scant waste, at a digestible cost.
Boxes are currently based on family size, available for one to four people, ranging in price from $99 to $349. Each box contains roughly 13 cuts of pork, chicken and beef per person.
Paleos, your dream may have just come true.
