Unfortunately – Zaycon Foods Unexpectedly ceased operations on June 25, 2018. We learned of this through a Facebook influencers group.
We have purchased products from Zaycon and were pleased with their service. So we are surprised and saddened by this news.
Our hearts go out to the employees who have lost their jobs AND to the customers who have paid for products that they will probably never receive.
If you have placed an order, your best recourse is to contact your credit or debit card company and tell them that you paid for products that were never delivered.
We are currently doing this with an order that we placed together with our daughter. We will let you know how it works.

We have always thought about buying meat in bulk online, but have never jumped in until now. We were at a conference where we were introduced to Zaycon Foods and their local fresh meat deliveries. You know that we are bargain shoppers but the quality and the pricing that Zaycon offers really piqued our interest. This is a really great way to lock in a good price on a large quantity of quality meat. It could save you a lot of time and money.
What is Zaycon Fresh?
You can think of Zaycon Fresh Foods as a meat coop. Have you ever been a part of a food share program, a produce rescue program, or received a food bank box? Well, Zaycon meat is a box all right, but it is top notch. It is buying in bulk at it’s finest. Buying via a food co-op can be very expensive. However, Zaycon meat is high quality due to direct relationships with the producer, fresher food again because of this direct relationship, and lower prices because you are cutting out the middleman (i.e. a retail venue). It is a smart food purchase and bulk food concept.

This is how a group buying system works. When many can order directly from the supplier, it drives the price down. As a result, this buying is done each month with pick up down the road, to ensure the requirements of the group discount price.
You order the meats in bulk about the size of a 40-pound case. One or a couple of families can split a case. You can even invite several friends over for a bulk-cooking day. Or you can do a meal prep day yourself, and have lots of dinners in the freezer for the future.
Watch our video at the bottom of the page where we pick up our order and talk with a Zaycon employee who runs the pick-up event.
Sale offerings are changing all of the time.
There are several options, but each option is only offered a few times per year. So the specific offerings and sales at the time of sign up will vary depending on the month!
How to pick up your bulk meat order
At the specified day/time of your local pickup, a refrigerated truck will arrive in your area.
You will drive to your pickup location on the day and time of your pickup event, generally within 30 minutes. And the delivery will be in the parking lot of a private business or organization where arrangements have been made.
You don’t even have to get out of your car. You just pull your car up in line. When it’s your turn, roll down your window and give the driver your name, pop your trunk and they will place a plastic sheet down to protect your vehicle and load your order into your trunk.
All you have to do is drive home with your order! This is very convenient!

(place your affiliate link in this bullet point) We will be shooting a Facebook Live video of our bulk cooking day, when we receive our 40 pound box of boneless, skinless chicken breast that we paid 99 cents for during the once a year flash sale. We will be breaking the meat up into 13 meals at 3 pounds of chicken per meal so we have leftovers for lunch and two dinners per meal.
Why would I buy meat in bulk online instead of at the grocery store?
If you are a real bargain shopper at the grocery store, then this program may not be for you. But if time is an issue and getting to the store for food shopping is difficult, then this could be the perfect solution!
Yes, it is a lot of meat at once, but if you have an extra freezer, all you need to do is repackage the meat into smaller quantity packages and load into your freezer!
Zaycon foods offer many different selections of beef, as well as a variety of chicken, pork, and seafood.
The cost can be 30-50% less than the grocery store depending on the meat selected.
Most of all, the meat is delivered farm fresh, never frozen (there are some exceptions like the Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon, that’s a little difficult to deliver fresh from Alaska). It comes directly from the farms, so it is very fresh, as opposed to meats in the grocery store, which often go through a long journey to arrive at their destination.
The quality of Zaycon Fresh is compared to the higher quality options in the grocery store. The local farms are handpicked and Zaycon is committed to providing the highest quality. If at any time a farm does not meet Zaycon’s strict standards, Zaycon will drop this farm and meat will not be available in this area until an acceptable replacement is found. So it’s not organic, but it’s pretty darn close.
Just look at how good this pork meat looks – you can almost taste it.
