With The Taste free range meat upgrade, you can be a better carnivore.
What is free range?
Free range is a farming husbandry where animals could roam around freely outdoors for at least part of the day, instead of being caged for 24 hours daily in a congested indoor environment. Free range animals enjoy finer feeds and sunlight which indoor housing system usually lacks.
Why do we need free range?
Many indoor-farmed animals could not engage in their natural behaviours which usually make them easily susceptible to diseases. Unnatural diets and overly-crowded housing environment also take big toll on animals' mentality and physical well-being. Many might not realise that raising free range animals could greatly benefit the eco-system of the farm when they forage, prey on insects, produce natural fertiliser and eat leftover crops.
What makes free range better?
What do The Taste patrons think of free range?
*we recently conducted a mini survey asking some of our regular customers what do they think of free range meat, and we are all very pleasant with the supportive results. Everyone we surveyed so far believes in that free range is better than factory farming in terms of quality and taste. Many supports free range because of animal welfare, many would cook and eat free range if possible. A few only cooks free range at home and orders only free range when dining out.
"Allowing animals to roam free and enjoy their lives is surely better for them and, eventually, better for us as the resulting food on our tables actually tastes better, too. If cost is a problem, then choose a slightly smaller piece of meat and go large on the veggies – you’ll feel far better for it!" - Tim
"I don't mind eating normal or free range when I dine out but I definitely prefer free range. Free range products taste better and are of better quality in my opinion! " - Rozanna
"I support animals having better quality of life and think the meat tastes better." - Steve
"Eating free range makes me feel like I have done something good and vendors who provide free range option seem more ethical." - Keith
"We always try to eat free range or organic. It’s fantastic to have the option to enjoy beautiful food and also it’s free range. Free range tastes better and feels respectful towards the animals. I think having free range option shows that the business really cares and is ethically minded, which would increase the customer base hugely." - Shona
