Recently I visited a branch of Meat One at Gulshan near K.D.A Market (near disco bakery). I was electrified to see the atmosphere of the meat shop.It does not look that I was present in meat shop in Pakistan. There was no dirt in the shop and the meat also looks very hygienic and fresh. I also saw that Meat One gives free delivery and anyone can order meat on 111-163-281, this service is beneficial for women. But when I see the price of the meat I was shocked as the prices were far higher than the market price.
I inquired about this from salesman, he replied that The conventional practice at most meat markets is to weigh the meat cut first and then trim away the wastages making you loose out on 100 to 200 grams of meat. But, at Meat One if you buy a kilo of meat to cook, that’s the amount that goes in your pan, no less. We remove all wastage before weighing the meat and you get exactly what they pay for: a kilogram of fresh meat, gram for gram, and bite for bite. He also added that it does not apply to whole carcass.
After listening to his argument I was somehow convinced but not fully. I hope that the prices in meat one is equal to the prices of market so that middle class can also buy from Meat one shop.
Meat One is owned by former cricketers Inzamam-ul-Haq and Saeed Anwar and some people claim that Mohammad Yousuf and Junaid Jamshed are also partners of this business venture.
