Thank you for choosing Butcher Supply Company! We have always strived to ship our orders out on the following business day from when you place your order. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and the current times, our suppliers have been running out of inventory and placing a lot of our popular processing supplies on backorder. Right now our orders are shipping out 2 to 3 weeks after being placed due to lack of inventory. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we are trying our very best to get your order out to you as quickly as possible.Unfortunately,Due to the recent rise of fuel cost our shipping rates have been impacted. Flat rate shipping is now $13.99 Thank you for your understanding.
