PLEASE NOTE: This item is MEAT and should be kept REFRIGERATED at all times. Therefore, in shipping this item one should use their best judgment based on their location, we ship from Seattle, WA. We provide gel ice packs that last roughly 72 hours during the Winter season. During the Summer, the number of hours decreases. 

UPS Ground will only suffice for our customers in the Pacific Northwest. If located outside the Pacific Northwest, we firmly recommended using an expedited method, either 1, 2, or 3-Day depending on distance and weather. We will of course be at your service for recommendations, but shipment of perishables is done so at the CUSTOMERS RISK, with this risk assessed and accepted upon purchase of this product. 

Many customers will make two separate orders for their products, with one being "Dry Goods" and one "Perishable/Refrigerated". This is a great way to decrease shipping cost, as the cost of expedited packages relies heavily on the weight of the box. 

For shipping questions or concerns, we will gladly assist you. Please call us during our normal store hours, or send an email to

Thank you,
Scandinavian Specialties
