ORIGINS AND CERTIFICATIONS :
Quality control at Nifeislife has become our mantra. We source all of our meat from one of the finest producers in the UK, HG Walter. We have tried and tested a lot of cuts and qualities and we believe in our suppliers and we like the "family" touch of HG Walter as they prepare, cut, wrap and pack their meats every day freshly for us and for you. Their veal is sourced from local farms all over the UK where animal welfare is paramount. The milk-based feed along with group rearing results in a pale, tender and delicious meat.

Veal is an Italian favourite and a British not-so-common meat.

HOW TO PRESERVE :
All our meats are cut in the morning and then sent directly to you. Preserve in the fridge up to 3 days. Suitable for freezing.
ON YOUR TABLE :
Serving two people, depending on the way you are cooking it, minced veal is the perfect ingredient to create some delicious, light and soft "polpette" (meatballs). Add an egg, salt, pepper and some milk-soaked? soaked bread to the meat and create tiny balls. Shallow-fry your meatballs in a dash of oil. Add some white wine and allow the polpette to cook for at least 20 minutes. Serve with anything you have in the fridge...They will always be delicious! Traditionally they were made with anything that was left-over from the day before!
WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE :
Choose veal minced meat if you are looking for something with a lighter taste. Minced veal is a perfect alternative to beef minced meat as it's lighter in taste and calories, but it can complement it in some recipes just to mix flavours (we always mix the two in ragù alla Bolognese for example). And even more, it's not common. Differentiate yourself!
