BGA-assured stockists are assisting people on lockdown by delivering quality-assured wild game meat to your doorstep!

The British Game Alliance (BGA), a not-for-profit organisation working to promote feathered game meat in the UK, is supporting its ‘BGA assured’ stockists who are assisting people around the country during the self-isolation period of the COVID-19 crisis.

Following the recent Government guidance around social distance and staying at home, BGA stockists Wild & Game, The Meat Box Company, The Pie Life and Willo Game will deliver quality assured wild game meat to your doorstep as an alternative to going to the supermarket. At a time of great uncertainty, it is reassuring for consumers to know that all BGA assured game meat is sourced in the UK and is therefore sustainable and easy to distribute.

Wild & Game’s self-isolation packs each include an indulgent selection of BGA assured game meat, game pies and pasties delivered straight to your door. One pack will last you fourteen days and is delivered free of charge nationwide.

The Meat Box Company work closely with the British Game Alliance, National Trust and the Forestry Commission ensuring that the wild game meat is of the very best quality. The delivery service is available nationwide by DPD and locally with their vans.

The Pie Life is a specialist bakery in Staffordshire, stocking a Venison Red Wine & Mushroom Pie amongst a wide range of other products, with free delivery to homes across the UK.

Willo Game, a BGA assured game stockist has produced a new Venison Hamper, as well as other frozen game products such as pheasant breasts, which can be delivered to homes nationwide.

Steven Frampton, co-founder of Wild and Game said: “The UK has found itself in an unprecedented situation and we recognise that as a retailer of frozen food we are able to offer something for the many people who are self-isolating. We’ve put together this cut-price pack with the aim of helping people to avoid supermarkets by having Wild and Game products delivered straight to the door. We hope we will be making self-isolation less of an ordeal by making mealtimes enjoyable.”

Andy Gray, Director of The Meat Box Company said: “We are excited to announce The Meat Box Company is delivering the finest meats from our farm in Devon to your front door, during this challenging period. We have been supplying our award winning meat to fine restaurants, hotels and gastro pubs across the West Country for over 60 years and now is the perfect time to let you tuck into our best cuts from the comfort of your home.”

The BGA introduced the ‘British Game’ Assurance Scheme to give buyers and consumers the assurance of traceability, provenance and quality in their game, from egg to plate. These delivery products fall under this quality assurance mark.

At the core of the BGA’s efforts is its pioneering marketing campaign, Eat Wild, created to raise awareness of feathered game and encourage greater consumption of British pheasant, partridge, grouse and mallard. Innovative and creative game recipes to try at home can be found HERE
