There's a new purveyor of high-end meat and seafood focusing on the business gift and incentive award market. 

Porter & York delivers fine meats and seafood fresh, not frozen, within 48 hours. A fourth-generation, family-owned firm based in the Pacific Northwest, all products are hand cut fresh when the order arrives, vacuum sealed, wrapped in white butcher paper and stamped with the cut, and then shipped with gel cold packs keeping it below 40 degrees via UPS. 

Favorites include the insanely good bone-in, 28-day aged porterhouse (available in 20- and 32-ounce sizes in either Natural Angus or USDA Prime grade, $37-$70) and filet mignon (available in eight- and 10-ounce sizes in either Natural Angus or USDA Prime grade, $25-$32). But there are a wide variety of choices available at all price points, from free-range, skin-on chicken breasts (two eight-ounce breasts for $7) to a 28-day aged USDA Prime seven-bone prime rib ($235).

Other choices include veal, pork, lamb, chicken, and seafood, including Alaskan king crab legs (five pounds for $95) and wild southeast Alaskan hook-caught salmon ($15 for a 6-8 ounce portion, $67 for a box of six). A variety of gift boxes are also available for $79-$245. All include a note that can be customized down to the individual recipient's name. All packaging sustainable, made from recycled materials.

Aside from fresh meat and seafood, both plastic and digital gift cards are available in denominations ranging from $50 to $250, and can be customized for large orders. 

As for large corporate gift accounts, the firm can handle orders in the hundreds, or even thousands, says Zac Petschl, General Manager of Porter & York.
