The grocery store can be a daunting place, and where to buy healthy meat in Japan can be the last thing on your mind after you’ve gone through the aisles full of wonderfully weird products, odd looking produce and colorful candy. If you saw HealthyTokyo’s previous article about nitrate free meat in Japan then you’re aware of the artificial substances contained in meat, from sterilizing chemicals, preservatives, therapeutic hormones, antibiotics and a whole host of other unnatural additives. Compared to other countries like the US, Japan isn’t as heavy handed on their meat additives, but generally, what you find at the supermarket isn’t as natural as you might think.

Another issue that arises when considering where to buy healthy meat in Japan is convenience. If you’re a regular meat eater, multiple trips to the supermarket can get old fast. Food delivery services are all the rage now and it extends far beyond unhealthy fast food with meal subscriptions and supermarket delivery options. With the launch of Sugarlady, the largest purveyor of natural and additive-free foods in Japan, HealthyTokyo has expanded our list of products and services to include a premium meat subscription and over 500 healthy foods.

About the Sugar Beef Subscription

Sugar beef is raised on ranches in Australia and New Zealand from Black Angus cattle. The meat is matured for 240 days, which is far longer than conventionally farmed beef. This results in more delicious beef that does not contain antibiotics, hormones or other therapeutic chemicals.

About the Sugar Pork Subscription

Succulent and juicy, the Sugar Pork is sourced from Ehime prefecture in Japan. The SPF Pork is guaranteed to be the safest pork available without containing therapeutic chemicals or antibiotics. This is because it is raised in a low stress environment with pristine conditions.

All the chicken in the Sugar Chicken subscription are famed ‘Akadori’ raised in the mountains of Tokushima and Kagawa prefectures. Sugar chicken does not contain any hormones or therapeutic chemicals. The chicken is also matured longer resulting in specially aged chicken with maximum flavor.
