COVID-19 Update & Precautions

To ensure the health and safety of our team, our customers, and our community, we are taking extra precautions at our Butcher Shop as well as for the production and delivery of our products in light of the rapidly changing COVID-19 developments. 

Production Facility
Close to a year ago, we moved our plant-based meat production to a dedicated facility just down the road from our Butcher Shop in Victoria, BC. This means that we can continue producing our Very Good meats in a controlled, dedicated environment.

We recently had (and passed) our HACCP audit, an international standard defining the requirements for effective control of food safety and follow the highest recommended standards of hygiene and cleanliness.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, we’ve taken some additional precautions at this facility including:

  • Additional hand-washing protocols for all team members
  • Temporarily suspending all non-essential visitors to the production facility
  • Additional sanitation/cleaning crew brought in every night for a full sanitation/clean of the facility

During such uncertain times, we think it’s more important than ever to continue providing a safe, local supply of plant-based protein to help feed our community.

Online Orders

Currently, our online store is running as normal.The utmost care is taken to provide a sanitary environment when packaging, shipping out or delivering orders.

    We are closely monitoring the situation and will be updating our operating hours/services offered as appropriate.

    From all of us, thank you very much for your support during these times of uncertainty. We are very appreciative of our Very Good community and want to do everything we can to return that support.

    James, Mitchell, and the rest of The Very Good Butchers
