A Cut Above Meats Toronto, Ontario & GTA


Bulk Price Savings for meat and fish: To qualify for bulk pricing, your order must be $1,976.00 or more.

Price Transparency: A Cut Above Meats does not advertise their pricing on their website apart from their financing option that start at $38 per week for 1 adult. It took many inquiries to get some sort of breakdown and we were not initially not provided with prices per pound and item. Rather, we received a summary of pounds of each item that would be included in our order.

Price Level: High. To our surprise A Cut Above Meats charges HST on their meat products at a rate of 14.94%. This is illegal and in conflict with the Ontario Ministry of Finance set rules on taxing food goods. HST should be 0% on meat and to make matters worse, they tacked on the “tax” at a rate higher than 13%. ( What's Taxable ) - A Cut Above Meats offers financing. Financing a food order could affect your credit score. We recommend to consult your financial advisor or Loans Canada before making the decision to finance your food.

Product Claims, Sourcing, and Certification: Information about each type of meat where it is sourced from, the farming practices, processing practices and applicable trade marks and certification is listed on their site under ‘Our Farmers’ and ‘Our Products’. There are also some videos of farmers they source from. A Cut Above Meats offers local meat and wild caught fish only but we’ve also seen them advertising Australian Wagyu beef.

Ordering Process: Complicated. To get bulk pricing you must first fill in an inquiry from with your contact details. Shortly after we submitted our info, we received an email from their customer service rep asking where we live. After answering, we were sent another form where we checked off what meats and fish we ate and at what frequencies. It felt like some sort of algorithm was going to decide what we should order. We were also probed for freezer space and family size. It wasn’t a good experience to feel like we needed to be eligible candidates to purchase some meat.

Customer Service and Reviews: Poor. Takes many inquiries with lots of back and forth communication (seems unnecessary). Very quick responses though. A Cut Above Meats charges HST which is overall a poor and illegal practice on meat and fish.
