Certified organic chicken liver direct from the farm in New Zealand. Liver is one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet. It contains significant amounts of folate, iron, vitamin B, vitamin A, and copper. Eating a single serving of liver can help you meet your daily recommended amount of all of these vitamins and minerals, reducing your risk of nutrient deficiency.
If you are new to organ meats, the best is to start form chicken as they are relatively neutral and easier to mask the flavor. Try our recipe Shio-Koji & Toasted Sesame Oil Chicken Liver (塩麴とごま油のさっぱり鶏レバー）

Eat every part, and feed everybody.
When considering nose-to-tail eating, it’s important to remember that an animal is not all meat. We should also think about the bones, offal, tendons, fat, skin and even the blood, as these parts in total comprise a significant chunk of the weight of the carcass.
The truth is, by celebrating these forgotten prized parts, we can put more food on our plates and feed more people. These parts also have the most flavour and nutrition. Yet sadly, these days most of them are thrown out or converted into animal feed.
In the past, consuming all parts of the whole animal was foundational to ensuring everyone in the community was fed.
Today many people claim that reducing meat consumption will make farming sustainable and ethical which is a little misleading. One animal can provide us with so much food. It’s our present eating choices and habits that need to change.
Why Frozen Meat is Better?
- Meat stops ageing when it is snap frozen after butchering and can be safely stored for months.
- When meat is frozen straight after it is butchered (which is how meat is packed at Proper Pasture) your meat couldn't get fresher. Despite the stigma around frozen, the impact on the quality of your meat is negligible.
- The number of days “fresh” meat spends in a distribution network further declines the quality of your meat. This is why you see many stores using the term “chilled” or “previously frozen” as.
- If you suffer from histamine related issues then buying meat that has been snap-frozen after butchering may be a better option for you as this lowers histamine levels in the meat.
- With over 99% of all food being imported into Hong Kong from all over the world, temperature abuse is very common during the supply chain. By keeping our stock frozen we minimize the risk of temperature abuse during transit. Our product is maintained at an even temperature throughout delivery to us and delivery to you.
- The likelihood of your food truly being “fresh” in Hong Kong is extremely unlikely. Over 99% of food is imported into HK and if it is being sold as “fresh” you can bet that it’s been at least a few days old before you buy.
- Frozen meat requires thawing which does add a small step to your food prep and some thinking ahead. The best way to thaw meat is in the fridge over a day or two, but otherwise on your bench, making sure it remains cold.
- Many people believe that frozen meat can be drier than fresh meat. However, this is not always the case and most people don't report any difference. If you defrost carefully this will mitigate moisture loss, which is the main reason for potentially drying out meat.
- The further the meat gets away from being truly fresh (consumed in a few days of being butchered) the more the histamine levels in the meat will rise.
