Brisket anyone? “El Mundo Orgánico” now has paiche and grass-fed beef

In addition to our usual offerings, we now have fresh beef and fish options for you. El Mundo Organico is now your source for bone-in, grass-fed beef that was raised in a sustainable system in the Amazon to ensure excellent quality, healthy meat, free from hormones and antibiotics. We also provide Paiche, the largest freshwater fish in the world and found only in the Amazon. Our source guarantees the Paiche is grown in a sustainable environment and guaranteed by Ecuador’s Ministerio de Ambiente (Ministry of the Environment).

To add any of these items to your “Build-Your-Own Basket”, please order from the following selections:

Bone-In Beef Brisket – The price for this cut of grass-fed bone-in beef is $4.00 per pound with a minimum order of 2 pounds; the meat is vacuum-packed and the average size of the brisket will be between 2-3 pounds.
Lomo Fino de Res (Beef Loin) – This cut is vacuum-packed in one whole piece. Because the Lomo Fino is provided as a whole piece and is not cut, the price per piece is variable. The price is $8 per pound. We will provide the weight and price of the cut before it is delivered.  
Bife (a small cut of beef) – This cut of grass-fed beef is vacuum-packed in approximately 500g weights. The price per pound for this beef cut is $7.50 per pound.
Paiche – This fish, found in the Amazon basin, is one of the largest freshwater fishes in the world, reaching up to 3 meters / 9.8 ft in length. High in protein, minerals, iron, zinc, and Omega 3, 6 and 9, Paiche meat is boneless, odorless, and mild, with a sweetness similar to lobster. We offer 300g packages of Paiche for $5.10 each or by the kilogram (2.2 lbs.) for $17. The Paiche has been vacuum-sealed and frozen to ensure freshness.
