Intercity Packers launches home delivery platform


June 25, 2020, Richmond, B.C. – Intercity Packers, B.C.’s only fully integrated supplier of custom-cut meat and seafood has pivoted to a new sales channel to keep product moving and their employees working.

In partnership with Central Fresh Food, Intercity Packer’s sister company which supplies custom-cut fruits and vegetables to restaurants, the two Richmond-based companies launched a home delivery platform that the public can order from.
Customers are able to select curbside free pickup from Intercity Packer’s location at Number 6 Road in Richmond, or contactless, refrigerated home delivery throughout Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

The platform is accompanied by a new website.

Steak, poultry, seafood, fresh produce and more items are available in variety packs, such as “The Grill Master” or “The Breakfast Boss.” Larger pack sizes for single items are also available, similar to what a chef would order and at wholesale prices.

“Our new home delivery platform represents our commitment to providing our community with safe, high-quality and carefully sourced produce, meat and seafood products,” said Danny Ransom, general manager of Intercity Packers. “Our company’s story has evolved over time, but we continue to uphold the quality and customer service standards we’ve become known for. Our team is also proud to be able to support our restaurant partners with the funds raised in the Intercity Packer Tip.”

Every purchase of their Butcher Bundles puts $5 in the Intercity Tip Jar, which donates 100 per cent of its funds to its program partners, including the Vancouver Aquarium, the Vancouver Food Bank and the Vancouver Food & Beverage Community Relief Fund, which distributes funds to food and beverage workers impacted by COVID-19 who require urgent financial relief. To date, more than $15,000 has been raised in the Intercity Tip Jar.
