One of the best parts of ordering your crab cakes from Box Hill is the ability to have the crab cakes shipped to your home. However, some nearby residents may be skeptical of shipping crab meat through the mail. Several questions arise like how does the meat stay fresh and will the crab cakes even taste the same. When you order your crab cakes online through Box Hill, you can rest easy knowing your crab cakes will arrive ready to cook and safe to eat.
So can we ship our crab cakes safely to our customers?
Box Hill begins the process by using only fresh ingredients when creating our crab cakes. Not only will fresh ingredients provide the best flavor, they won’t spoil as quickly as older ingredients. We then use Styrofoam containers as a shipping vessel for the crab cakes once an order has been placed. This helps to keep the crab cakes fresh while also helping them hold their shape during transportation. The containers are then packaged using dry ice to help keep the cakes cold and as fresh as possible upon arrival. Dry ice helps to maintain temperature during shipment without the risk of moisture entering the containers. The crabs cakes are shipped the day following the order being placed through Federal Express to ensure freshness and safety.
