Unfortunately poultry prices as many other items have recently increased substantially, but specifically you will see our poultry items have increased. Being that our products are almost all meat and then dried, small increases in the raw meat are multiplied by at least threefold. Additionally the already high price of air-dried means a higher dollar jump in price. Example a $1 item increases by 10% the new price is $.10 higher, when a $100 item jumps 10% it is a $10 price jump. In the past year we have seen a 35% increase in poultry prices(and increases in other meats), as well as increases in shipping, packaging and labor. It has always been and continues to be our goal to provide a quality product at an affordable price! While our prices have gone up you will see comparatively our prices are still much lower. Recent price increases by our competitors a 2lb bag of Beef or Chicken are selling for $45-$54 while our pricing is $32-$35. It is also our promise when prices start to fall that we will lower our prices accordingly! We want to assure you we are not taking advantage of the situation and raising prices to improve margins simply trying to keep up with the costs that are being passed along to us and stay in business. Keep an eye on the specials page, when we get deals we will be sure to make those deals available to you! Glenn and the rest of the Real Meat Team thank you for your support of our brand and are truly grateful to our loyal customers!
