Our Story

truLOCAL is more than just a box of (delicious) meat. It's the community we've built, the producers we work with, the members of our team, and the journey along the way.

What is truLOCAL?

truLOCAL connects you to locally-sourced, high quality meat products, that are delivered right to your doorstep across Illinois. We ship overnight with dry ice, so your box will remain frozen while it’s delivered - even if you aren’t home when your box gets there! Our customizable plans have no commitments, so you can skip or cancel at any time - no strings attached!

A new way to support local!

truLOCAL started as a way for people to access high-quality, locally-sourced, delicious meat products more easily throughout Illinois. We have become one of the leading alternatives for grocery store shopping, with the added convenience of delivery to your home, office, or gym. Supporting local is most important - so if you already frequent an amazing farmer or butcher, that’s great! If you’re still on the lookout for a great alternative to the major stores, you’re in the right place.

Connecting you to the source

It doesn’t need to be difficult to buy amazing products from fantastic local butchers and farmers. You should be able to enjoy incredibly tasty Midwest food, while choosing who you purchase from, and seeing where your products were raised.

That’s what truLOCAL is for! We believe in transparency, from the source of the delicious baby back ribs to how the strip steak was aged. We’re so excited to introduce you to the suppliers you support by ordering with us, and connect you directly to the source of your truLOCAL box.

truLOCAL currently delivers across the USA including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
