A Tale of Two (then three) Meatheads

Jesse Rees

Jesse’s appetite for great meaty treats was built on years of residence in France, Italy and the USA – and a natural taste for the fine things in life. When he moved back to the UK, Jesse brought with him a passion for charcuterie, and set about exploring the mouth-watering new wave of British artisan produce.

Sharing his discoveries with friends and family, he soon realised that there was a real hunger for these healthy, protein packed, delicious delights – and along with old pal and biltong-lover Stefan Cudby, Jesse set up a service to source and supply great UK cured meats. At that point fresh meat was something of a sideline, but then Jesse popped down to his local independent butcher.... 

Our Butcher - Dan Neal 

Dan Neal is a third generation New Forest family butcher - with a well-established reputation for the best in free range meats, meticulously prepared for the queues of customers that flood to his shop on a daily basis. 

One of those customers was Jesse...one taste of Dan’s great steaks led to another...and another...and then a full range of his fresh meats from small local farms joining the Meatbox selections! Plus, our special meat counter, where customers can choose their favourites and create their own Meatbox – with every cut vacuum sealed for 24 hour delivery, in recyclable wool lined boxes to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.

The Meatbox Mantra...

  • We believe the standard of meat products from the best British producers is exceptional – but that doesn’t mean that they have to be prohibitively expensive.
  • Our boxes ensure that affordable, quality fresh meats and charcuterie finds its way seamlessly to people’s front door to be enjoyed by families all over the country. 
  • We go out of our way to select and support British farms…not factories. All of our meats are pure, healthy, protein-packed natural products.

So that’s us, the people and the philosophy behind Meatbox. We’re at your service...tuck in!
