While you can buy local meat from the wet markets and imported meat from the supermarkets, for convenience, finer cuts, and organic, imported meat, Mango Menus recommend the following suppliers. There are also some exclusive discounts for Mango Menus' readers.
Jett Foods is an online retailer selling premium frozen meats and seafood, all from overseas. Products include UDSA prime, US certified Angus Beef, Spanish Duroc pork, NZ lamb, NZ grassfed rib eye (Mango Menus highly recommends), sirloin and US 100% premium Berkshire pork mince, US organic chicken and seafood from all over the world.

MM Fresh supplies all natural, grassfed lamb & beef from NZ as well as sustainable, line-caught, wild fish from NZ, Australia and the surrounding coastline. They also sell a few handmade pies. The fish is some of the freshest available in HK, caught on a Tues/Wed and delivered to your door every Friday. The beef is wet aged in the pack.

Three Butchers - home delivery service for 100% grass fed Australian beef. Look out for the family pack of ribeye steaks, mince, sausages, stir fry meat and an eye fillet, reasonably priced. And they deliver pretty much everywhere, free for orders over $700 and $50 otherwise. Try Mango Menus' teriyaki recipe for the fillet.
Porterhouse- wide range of meats including USDA prime aged steaks, certified Angus beef and grain fed Australian Angus. Also sells Coleman organic chickens.

Leo's Fine Foods - sells fresh & frozen meat online. Spend over $1000 to avoid the $150 delivery charge, or visit their warehouse in the Remex centre Aberdeen. This is by far one of the cheapest online retailers for imported meat, fish and cold cuts. My order in May 2014 included 1kg of US chicken breasts for $59!
Golden Goose Gourmet -sells fresh & frozen meat including organic chicken, fois gras and sliders. Free delivery for orders over $600 and 10% off first order if you sign up to the newsletter. Email us if you would like a further $80 off your first order and we can arrange that through their "refer a friend policy" (which will reward us in a very small way back).
Fish Wives is a direct importer and distributor of Malaysian chicken and pasture fed hormone and antibiotic free NZ lamb and beef, (as well as NZ King Salmon (Kosher) and barramundi from Singapore). Delivery to HK is infrequent so please check the website for the next date.
TC Deli, in Hang Hau sells a wide range of imported regular meats (mainly Aussie and American) including free range poultry, ostrich, kangaroo and a large variety of fish, charcuterie, bakery items and patisseries. If you don't live locally, Mango Menus thoroughly recommends making a short day trip there and combining it with a steak lunch at Lardos just next door, who will even provide your kids with colouring pencils while you kick back with a glass of red.
Lung Wah is a retail and wholesale meat supplier based in Shek Tong Sui whose latest product list you can download here in Chinese. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the English version. They sell mostly frozen food, but also have chilled meat. Provenance includes Brazil, US, New Zealand, Australia, Holland, Spain and Scotland and they also stock organic/natural and hormone free products. For most steaks, pork chops and fish, they can cut the thickness and amount according to your liking. Delivery is free of charge for purchases exceeeding $1000. They deliver to Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, the NT and Ma Wan, but not to Tung Chung or the outlying Islands.

Shek Kee Frozen Meat Company is a very basic retail outlet in 17 Kung Tack Lung Back. It is in the alley behind the bar called Steamers, just past Baboushka, the children’s clothes shop.
