Get essential meats delivered to your door
Trips to the supermarket are hectic at the moment with demand for essentials so high that stores aren’t able to restock shelves at the same pace. We have a working solution for your protein needs.
We are The Standard Meat Co. and want to move with the market, we see the gap in the demand and supply so we’ve decided to open an online store through our sister company, University Meats!
Home delivery is currently available for Melbourne Metro consumers, with potential plans to expand to interstate and regional locations in the near future; though customers can also opt to pick up their orders from University Meat’s headquarters in Carlton, Victoria.
University Meat Director, Alex Marcocci, believes that in the current climate, community solidarity is critical.
“It’s so important to keep supporting each other during this time so we can keep the farmers, our supply chain and employees working in order to put food on the table. We source predominantly from Victorian producers and are proud to be able to offer such quality, local goods to the broader community”.
A little bit of background on the business
University Meat is a family run wholesale butcher established in heart of “Little Italy”, Carlton, Victoria, over 50 years ago.
Founded by Eusebio Marcocci OAM (who originally migrated from in Italy), University Meat has created a cohort of loyal Foodservice Customers including leading caterers, restaurants, hotels, stadiums and institutions. Though Alex emphasises that part of its mission has always been to offer restaurant quality meat directly to the local community.
“It has been a long-time coming, but we couldn’t have done it alone and so I’d like to thank everyone for their continued support over the years – we’re committed to the health and safety of our suppliers, employees, customers and the community we serve”, said Alex.
