Is raw food safe? How do we store, handle and maintain hygiene with raw meat?

Raw feeding is perfectly safe. It's all about storage, handling and hygiene.

All Poppy’s Picnic fresh products are designed to be, and are safe, served raw. While they need to be thoroughly defrosted – most of our products thaw within two hours at room temperature. 

The basics to follow are:

  • Store your delivery in the freezer
  • Defrost in the fridge overnight or simply leave it to thaw in the same way you would safely defrost any meat you eat yourself
  • After feeding, wash the bowl and wipe down the kitchen surfaces, remembering to wash your hands

That’s it! No more complicated than using any other raw meat or fish from the freezer.
