Our Meal Kits: Sustainable by Nature

Our sourcing, packing, and shipping operations generate less food waste than the traditional food retailers, and so our customers discard less food while cooking and serving meals at home.

Keeping More on Your Plate

When food waste goes to landfill, it impacts the climate by producing greenhouse gases. In total, UK households waste 4.5 million tonnes of food every year1. We help you reduce food waste by purchasing ingredients based on your order, pre-portioned to the gram.

No Detours

We order all ingredients directly from our suppliers, so your groceries are delivered straight to your home without stopping at warehouses and retailers. This saves CO₂ emissions by cutting back on transport time and extra storage. We are proud that our meal kit delivery is currently 50% CO₂ neutral.

Innovative Packaging

Your ingredients are always of the highest quality and are delivered to your door fresh and safe. We are continuously innovating to find more sustainable options or to remove packaging altogether.

Freshly Sourced

Where food comes from is as important as how it tastes. We attach a great deal of importance to regional and seasonal produce, as well as sustainable agriculture, fishing, and animal farming.

Giving Back

We support the community through organisations like The Felix Project to make sure that any food surplus we have at our packing facility is donated to those who need it most.
