ButcherBox gives away bacon for life
One of the fastest growing subscription boxes, ButcherBox, is running a promotion that should scare every food retailer.
The company, which claims to be the leading meat delivery service for sustainably-raised grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, and heritage-bred pork, is currently running a deal that offers free bacon in each monthly box for every new customer who signs up.
Customers get to choose whether they want a specific meat or a mix and how many meals they would like, and how often they'd like to receive a box. Prices start at $129 per month, which evens out to spending about $32 on food per week. That's close to what a shopper might be spending anyway, plus they are getting free bacon.
ButcherBox says it has claimed a prominent niche in the growing meat delivery market by sourcing meats raised without antibiotics or hormones and by supporting family farms across the country. ButcherBox says its meats are frozen at the peak of freshness and then shipped with dry ice in Vericooler I containers.
