Louisiana Dry Ice and Shipping Co. excels in the shipping of perishable foodstuffs, delivering authentic Louisiana flavors to tables across the country. The boneless stuffed chickens get a flavor-punch from Louisiana Season spices, can self-repel hungry neighborhood dogs, and are satisfyingly stuffed with one of eight fillings: broccoli, cornbread, potato, rice, sausage, shrimp—and, available seasonally, crawfish or oyster.
Ice-bound shipments thaw out and plump up into hot sausage links or patties crafted by the New Orleans institution Patton’s Sausage Company, established in 1942 to supply meat-cased artillery to the war effort. Shipping costs vary and customers do not have to purchase the shipping option to ship the frozen fare.
Before morphing into expert meat-mailers, the company began as the shipping partner of the Southern Sweet Potato Pie Company and expanded to supply dry ice and other shipping supplies to myriad companies, including the Home Shopping Network. As the state’s only 24-hour provider of dry ice, the company enables emergency Halloween parties and helps mold and chill the state’s young minds by supplying dry ice to Louisiana college chemistry departments.
