Naturally Fresh Foods presents itself as a distributor of clean, safe, steroid free, no hormones, organic provider of fresh frozen meats. They will tell you that the beef products are aged, reducing shrinkage, and offer you a 26 week / 6month food supply delivered to your home and packed away in a freezer at an affordable weekly price.
It is not difficult to determine what you're paying. On there menu, there is a 6 digit code listed before each product. The last 3 digits are known as " points ". For example: Ground Beef: 050455 If you purchase 3 packages of ground beef (x) the last 3 digits ( 455 ) you just spent 1365 points. So, here is what you do. Apply the mathmatics to every single product you purchased. Get a grand total of all the points and divide it into what the total cost of your order. Example: 10000 total points. Order cost for example 2000.00. Take 2000.00 and divide it by 10000 points and you get .20 ( point factor )
Now that you know the factor you can then apply it to each and every product. For example if Ground beef is 455 points x .20 you just paid 91.00 for 4 lbs of ground beef.
Here is the best part of the Rip-Off. They will offer you a discount program, selling you overpriced food related appliances to off set the cost of the food. Freezers for 2000.00, Grills for 4500.00, cookware and cutlery for ridiculous prices but they come with lifetime gurantees....lol. By the way, those commercial grade freezers actually cost them around 600.00.
So they finance the appliances over 36 months at a high rate of interest, then apply the discount the appliance might offer, say 20%. And all of a sudden the cost of the discounted food covers the monthly payment on the overpriced appliance and they say......" you see Mrs. Jones, this appliance costs you nothing, it's free !!!!!"
In addition , this company does not pay sales tax, nor do they pay proper income tax. The whole company is run by a degenerate named Jim Barbarula, who spent time in jail for running numbers. Thats right, a " bookie" is feeding your family.
What they dont want you to know is that there products are no different than what is sold in any local supermarket for alot less. In addition, the beef is not aged in a special room, and the flash freezing process they speak of is actually a regular walk in freezer that freezes just like your own freezer at home. ( slowly )
This company will not disclose its price per lb, yet ohio law states they are supposed to. In reality this meat is purchased from a meat processor ( Bower and Sons ) out of millersport, oh. 740.527.0989, who has its own retail division right on the property where you can purchase the identical product for a quarter of the price.
So, when they say " for 55 dollars per week can we earn your business ? " you should say NO THANKS.
One more small point. You will run into this company at food shows or any other concept to draw in leads. Do yourself a favor and keep on walking.
