Meet the Meat Boss

Meet the Meat Boss

Meat Direct is a meat wholesaler owned by Tyler Pederson, known by his friends and customers as The Meat Boss. Tyler had been looking for a way to share his passion for premium quality meats with his friends and the community. He found people were always reaching out to him asking where to buy the best meat. His secret? Peace Country protein!

Tyler has worked hard to develop relationships with the best local farmers across the Peace Country region to bring fresh local meat directly to your door. Buying from local farmers ensures that Tyler provides his customers with fresher, cheaper and better-tasting protein. More and more people want to know where their food comes from and the farming practices of the farmers that produce it and Tyler is making that happen. 

There are many options available for purchase, meat bundles, subscriptions and special orders.   In a time when where rising prices are making typical grocery store meat purchases more expensive, Tyler hopes people will work with him to save money with bundles or subscriptions and close the gap on where their meat is sourced.

With advances in technology, you can now order from Meat Direct from anywhere you get a signal. Meat Direct’s engaging website makes browsing and ordering new products fun, engaging and assessable to all.

“In the future, my goal would be for customers to place an order and we can get it to you just as fast as a pizza delivery service,” Tyler Pederson said.

If you are from the Peace Region you have probably seen Tyler’s van rolling on by.  After starting out in a parked refrigerated trailer, upgrading to this delivery van has created mobile advertising for his business. Tyler utilizes the northern Alberta trade area and the network of highways to quickly deliver his products to communities across the region. This aids him to help supply fresh quality meats to many more people than traditional suppliers.


“The great thing about my business is I go buy meat from local farmers and delivery it directly to you. You can order online, text or call and have access to a greater selection of beef, wagyu, bison, and so much more,” Tyler Pederson said.

The best part about ordering from Meat Direct is their free delivery to Grande Prairie, County of Grande Prairie, Wembley, Clairmont and Grovedale. Better yet all orders made before 10:00 a.m. Monday-Friday receive same-day delivery!  Purchasing meats from Meat Direct not only supports a local entrepreneur but also supports our community farmers.

“This is the hardest thing I've ever done. But it's the most rewarding thing when it is going well,” said Tyler.
