Sausage is shipped in a sturdy styrofoam container. Some items are shipped out frozen, while others are shipped fresh. Depending on the amount of frozen items in the shipment we may or may not add extra ice packs. We do not use dry ice. Our products are shipped as fresh as possible so that even if items defrost during transit there is no harm in refreezing them upon arrival. See storage information located on each catalog page for further information.
