Gustor Meat Boutique takes the neighbourhood butcher online

It’s not exactly difficult to find high-quality meat these days. While not all of us have the time to run around the country to shop at Dierendonck in Nieuwpoort, Rondou in Leuven or De Laet en Van Haver in Antwerp, now there’s a quality solution for everyone: Order your lamb chops online.
 

The butcher in question dates back to 1885, when August Eeckhout set up shop in Koksijde on the Flemish coast. He eventually passed it along to his son Michel, who passed it to his son Fernand.

In 1989, Fernand’s son-in-law, Rik Debouver (pictured right), took over Slagerij Fernand. As a university graduate with a fresh outlook, he started organising tastings allowing people to sample the best the world has to offer – pata negra iberico, simmental, rubia gallega and dry-aged pork belly.

Rik’s son Jef (pictured left) was also looking to discover new things. At 20, he set out to explore the world and ended up at a cattle ranch in Australia, where he worked as a cowboy, discovering the potential of free-range meat. Last  year, he brought his ideas back to Koksijde, and the Gustor Meat Boutique was born.

It’s one of Belgium’s few online butcher shops, and its range includes Black Angus, Holstein Premium Austria, 100% Wagyu and much more. The meat is cut and prepared in the shop and is delivered refrigerated within 24 hours to anywhere in Belgium France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany.

“It’s always fresh, we never freeze it,” says Rik. “We don’t do pre-sliced or pre-packed meat, and we only cut what the client needs.”

The meat selection is posted in three languages and includes lamb, pork, beef, game and poultry. Currently, you can get organic lamb chops from the Ardennes and grain-fed Black Angus beef from Australia.

“Choosing, ordering and tasting should be a special experience,” Rik says. “We want to give the customer the feeling of a real butcher’s, even if it’s online, and share our trade and professional knowhow, which we’ve built up over five generations.”

Customer advice is also important, and the Gustor Meat Boutique is available seven days a week for questions by phone, email or social media. “We’re not salesmen, we’re butchers,” Rik says. “Old-fashioned butchers in new clothes, but butchers all the same.”

And should you want to visit in person, Slagerij Fernand is at Zeelaan 308.

    (Benelux and France)

    Ordered before 11 a.m., delivered before 6 p.m. the next day. We deliver from Tuesday to Saturday, but you can always order.

    You can follow the order via a track & trace code, which arrives in your mailbox one day before delivery. The Gustor package is sent under guarantee via Dynalogic.

    It is important to know that we always send fresh and chilled and never frozen - unless otherwise stated on the website. Thanks to the refrigerated packaging, we can guarantee our customers an optimal taste experience. The meat therefore remains refrigerated after delivery! Ideal for those who deliver at the reception of the office or workshop.

    If the meat is not delivered in excellent condition, the customer gets his money back. That is the Gustor guarantee.

    Gustor Meat Boutique also has a Pick-Up store in Koksijde, where orders can be picked up for free. Stores can only be found in Belgium (Brugge and Koksijde)

    The address of the Pick-Upstore is Zeelaan 308, Koksijde. Open from Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

When stored under 7 ° C, the vacuum packaging guarantees a total freshness of ten days after reception. For poultry this is four days with a storage under 4 ° C.

In the freezer you can keep the meat for up to six months.

All products are shipped fresh - and therefore not frozen - unless stated otherwise on the website. No product was previously frozen.

A special announcement about smell, color and taste. Gustor Meat Boutique products are top products, usually matured and always full of flavor. If you have no experience with such products, you will undoubtedly notice that our products usually have a specific smell. Also, the slightly browner, matured color is different from the meat that you find in the supermarket.

This is completely normal. For example, an odorless wine cannot possibly be a top wine, and the color evolves as the wine ripens longer.

Because we work with fresh products, it is possible that a product is no longer available. Keep an eye on the website or email us to see when something is available again.

Delicious (and) fresh meat guaranteed, thanks to a combination of cooling and insulation.

The meat is cut to size as desired. Ordered multiple items? These are first individually vacuum packed, so hygiene and safety remain guaranteed. The packaged meat then goes into an insulating EPS (polystyrene) box, which keeps the meat in excellent condition during shipping.

At Gustor Meat Boutique we attach great importance to the environment. The packaging was specially designed by us and is environmentally friendly. The enclosed cooling elements are perfectly reusable and have been certified by an independent inspection body: non-toxic and suitable for cooling foodstuffs - in full compliance with the rules of the FASFC. If you still want to discard the box, it is good to know that EPS is perfectly recyclable.

Our meat is never sent frozen, unless otherwise stated on the website.

All weights on the website of Gustor Meat Boutique are global weights that make a payment in advance possible. The actual weight of the meat can differ, because the order is in its total weighted.

Gustor Meat Boutique guarantees that the difference between the two will never be greater than 5%. If the delivered weight proves to be more than the originally given weight, the customer obviously does not have to pay.

Should the difference still be greater than 5%, Gustor Meat Boutique provides a refund in cash.

The difference between the two weights is calculated with a subtraction sum and then multiplied by the average price per kilo of the purchased goods.

La race n’est pas le seul paramètre essentiel dans la qualité d’une viande. Le ‘terroir’ - le milieu dans lequel l’animal a vécu - et la nourriture qu’il a reçue sont autant d'éléments cruciaux. Les Highlands écossais, les Alpes autrichiennes, les forêts des Landes sont autant d’environnements qui garantissent une plus-value dans la qualité de la viande. Nous sommes constamment à la recherche de ces viandes provenant de ces régions d’exception. Il est évident qu’une viande de vache Holstein qui a passé des années dans un élevage laitier aux Pays-Bas n’a rien en commun avec celle du même type d’animal qui s'est nourri dans les herbages des Alpes autrichiennes.

Vous recevrez un couriel de confirmation immédiatement après votre commande. Dès cet instant, l’adresse de livraison ne peut plus être modifiée. Nous tenons ainsi éviter tout risque de confusion qui entraîneait un retard de plusieurs jours.
