What about freshness with meat, produce and fresh fruit orders?
We only purchase fresh produce and meats if they appear to be in good condition. The best way we have found to ship these products is by air freight. All fresh meats will be frozen before they are shipped by air freight or bypass mail only.
Please be aware that fresh meat packages have a "Sell by Date" on each package. There is a good chance that you will receive your fresh meat order after the listed date has expired. We will purchase and freeze all fresh meat before the "Sell by Date" has expired.
Can you send our merchandise to us by Bypass Mail?
Yes. As one of the largest independent bypass mail shippers in the state, we are prepared to
send all of your freeze, chill and dry grocery items Bypass Mail to over 125 Alaskan villages.
To qualify to be able to use the Bypass Mail program you need to have a min. of 1000 lbs of grocery merchandise. Please beware that no oversize/weight parcels or haz-mat can be shipped bypass mail,
The big advantage to using the bypass mail system is that you can send chill and freeze items along with your dry merchandise for less cost then it would normally be if you sent the same weight by air freight and the merchandise is delivered right to your business/residence location.
