I just bought 10kg of mixed pork cuts for 180chf

I'm posting on a forum and am therefore too stupid to work out the per kilo price
Ha, that's me just typing out what I'm thinking and pressing submit before I read through !! Does look like a maths lesson !! :

btw, was the was the 10kg for Fr180 the full price or aktion price

Meat Eaters,
If you are ever passing through Ibach/Seewen in gods own Kanton SZ, make some time to call in to the Fabrikladen at Felder:

http://www.swisstell.ch/verkauf/fabrikladen/index.HTML

Best quality US,
Best

Rep
So, this is USDA Prime and not Choice or Select as you normally get?
Honestly, you pay a shit load for duty and transport but then resort to the lower stuff to "save" a few bucks? The mind boggles.

Re: Why is meat so expensive in Switzerland? (and so cheap just outside CH)

Yup USDA Prime beef - Tomahawk steaks - Felder don't always have them but they are superb.

Noticed when reading the packaging "USDA Prime beef - raised and slaughtered in the US - Butchered in Poland"......Thats Poland Europe not Poland Ohio.

When it tastes as good at it does the the food miles are worth it!

Best

Re: Why is meat so expensive in Switzerland? (and so cheap just outside CH)

Two hours ago I was shopping at Coop, where they have minced beef for CHF9/kg (no sticker, just a regular Aktion). This is cheaper than in Greece (where I come from)...

Seriously WTF? I'm asking how much the meat is so that I can compare with my normal prices.

The human race is a parasite on the earth - I get it. I could list 100 reasons why. If the entire population of Switzerland stopped eating meat it would have no impact. Why not go and tell the Chinese to stop burning dirty coal or Al Gore to stop flying his private jet
I was being facetious to Capo, who is denial over his fat arse and red meat consumption, but you can take my comment however you like, I'll skip the irony next time hun, especially as my comment flew over your head. x

Sorry, when you quote me directly, I don't go hunting 10+ days back through the thread to check for irony aimed at other posters

Well they went down to 50% and there were only 2 left in fridge after I'd bagged 2 packs this morning at 9.45am....guess I wasn't the only one with my beady eye on them

Re: Why is meat so expensive in Switzerland? (and so cheap just outside CH)

I picked up 3.8kg of Uruguayan entrecôte for CHF 130 and just over a kilo of Swiss "shoulder fillet", which I am assuming to be chuck for CHF 20. BBQ is heating up while the burgers I've made are chilling. I'm looking forward to my late lunch! First time I've made burgers.
