Papa Earth Canada Review 2021

In order to prosper, meal kit companies have to keep in mind all the different types of food preferences and diets, from vegetarian and vegan to carnivore, and from kosher to halal. It is hard to combine all these preferences in one company, and the big companies try their best. However, smaller companies prefer to choose their specialty. For those of you interested in a mostly carnivore diet, or simply like to enjoy high-quality meat or seafood every now and then, Papa Earth will be the best choice in Canada.

What Is a Carnivore Diet?

The carnivore diet is perfect for meat lovers. It is a restrictive diet that only includes meat, fish, seafood, and other animal-based foods, including internal organs, eggs, and certain dairy products. It completely excludes fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and other types of plant-based foods, aiming for a zero carb intake.

The proponents of the carnivore diet claim that it can help with treating depression, anxiety, obesity, diabetes, and more, but no scientific research has been done to support this statement.
You don’t need to follow a carnivore diet to order Papa Earth products. They are available to all meat, fish, and seafood lovers in Canada. Papa Earth products are free of food dyes, preservatives, or pumping. The company sources only the highest quality and uses artisan butchers.

Papa Earth: Credibility and Reputation

Papa Earth was established in 2016 in Ontario as an organic meat delivery company. It started off as just a complementary service to a bulk order program but due to increased popularity, they decided to launch the online store in October 2018 and make it available Canada wide. Today, the company serves over 2000 households all across Canada, and the number of happy customers is rapidly growing.

What makes Papa Earth so popular? First of all, it’s the quality of their products. All the meats, poultry, and fish they sell are clean, free from preservatives and dye, with no water chilling or pumping. The Papa Earth team personally tests the quality of their products. They know their local suppliers and make sure that all ethical and humane practices, such as free-range or free-run, are implemented.

Another factor that contributes to the company’s popularity is convenience. Vacuum-sealed products are frozen and delivered to your door in an insulated box. Keep them in your freezer until you are ready to cook.

The Papa Earth boxes come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. The small box is recommended for one person, the medium box contains enough products for 2-3 people, and the large box will work best for a bigger family. You can decide how frequently you want your meat to arrive at your place. The orders are delivered every two, three, four, or six weeks. If you accidentally ordered too much, no worries! As long as the meat is kept at a steady freezing temperature and the vacuum seal is intact, it can last up to 12 months in the freezer.

Once you’ve selected your size and delivery frequency, it is time to fill in your box with high-quality, delicious proteins. You can choose between organ meat, chicken and turkey, beef, pork, seafood, lamb, bison, and butter.

Organ meat includes chicken hearts, beef liver, heart, tongue, and more. The chicken comes from whole to breaded chicken tenders to chicken feet. All the meats come in any variety you can imagine: different types of steaks, roasts, stews, patties, and more. The seafood section includes several types of fish, wild-caught scallops, and Argentina wild-caught shrimp.

In addition, you can order a three-pack of grass-fed butter inspired by pasture-raised farming in Northern Ontario. The butter comes in two varieties, salted and unsated. The salted type contains two ingredients, cream, and salt. In the unsalted butter, there is only cream, and nothing else.

Customer’s Personal Experience

We are always curious to know what current clients think about the company’s service. For this purpose, we interviewed one of the PapaEarth customers:

What is your name and where are you from?

Alexandra Brown; Whitby, Ontario 

How did you find Papa Earth and why you decided to join?
I found PapaEarth online when searching for meat delivery during the pandemic. I have a young child and wanted to cut down on visiting high-traffic stores. Personally, too, I think big stores are getting even bigger and crippling smaller businesses of all kinds. I like finding businesses that are local or in Ontario to spend my money at. 

How long have you been a Papa Earth customer? 
April 2020. 

What plan do you prefer and why?
I have a subscription for the medium box every three weeks. I have had to pause once because I still had some meat to get through. I meal plan for my partner and me and am able to order what I need to make those meals. 

How many portions a week do you order?
I have a box that comes every three weeks but sometimes I change what’s in the order depending on what I’ll be making. Since we eat meat almost every day, I guess 10-12ish portions. 

Could you please tell us about the delivery and packaging?
I get an e-mail from the company when my box will be delivered that is pretty accurate. They knock when they deliver and because I’m home with my son, I am typically able to get it right away. The box is cardboard and there’s an insert. All the portions I picked from the website are packaged separately so I can check that what I ordered is what came. Inside the box is cold, so I think they use dry ice. The meat is frozen still. 

How long does it take you to cook a meal, on average? What problems did you encounter?
It depends on what I make. The orders don’t come with recipes so it’s up to me :) 

What are your favorite meals and why?
Striploin steaks. I just use a rub and pop them in the air fryer with a touch of oil. Easy to make but then I feel fancy having steak on a Monday, haha :) 

Did you communicate with Papa Earth customer service since you signed up? How did it go?
Only once. Julian answered really quickly and let me change my order with him over the phone as it wasn’t packed yet. 

Here are some photos that the PapaEarth team shared with us and on their social media accounts:
