Sustainability is a part of everything we do. HelloFresh provides a more sustainable way to buy, prepare, and enjoy food.

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.

Sustainability Report 2020

In 2020 we offered more customers than ever a safe, convenient way to source fresh ingredients. As we grew, so did our commitment to do so sustainably. Read our 2020 Sustainability Report to learn exactly how we acted on this commitment – from becoming the first global carbon-neutral meal kit company to donating €13 million worth of unused food to those in need.

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’ve also committed to offsetting 100% of our direct CO2 emissions, making us the first global carbon-neutral meal kit company.

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.

Donate your box to Charity

We've partnered with London based charity The Felix Project who help fight hunger by rescuing fresh, nutritious surplus food and delivering it to charities and schools for people in need. We work with this charity to make sure that any surplus food we have at our packing facility is donated to those who need it most.
You can also support by donating your HelloFresh box to The Felix Project to support those in need.

Diversity and Inclusion at HelloFresh UK

HelloFresh is on a mission to change the way that people eat, forever. We believe that everyone is welcome at our table. We know we have more work to do to reflect this belief throughout our organisation, ensuring that we have clear actionable commitments, as actions speak louder than words.

We want to be clear that we do not tolerate racism or any form of discrimination and we commit to further educating ourselves and holding ourselves accountable for taking action to improve.

As a result, we have spent the last few weeks listening to understand how we can take meaningful action now and in the future. Our newly established Diversity and Inclusion Forum has decided on a number of clear and actionable initiatives that HelloFresh commits to in the UK.

    These commitments include:

  • Changing how we advertise vacancies to include more inclusive language and reconsidering how we describe requirements to make sure candidates from all backgrounds feel encouraged and empowered to apply. Starting immediately, we are changing the way we advertise, recruit and select for roles to be more mindful and supportive of diversity and inclusion.
  • Increasing diversity at all levels, with a focus on management roles, by upgrading our training and paths to progression. To deliver this, we are reconsidering our internal processes to reflect diversity and inclusion, with a focus on the language and procedures for appraisals, interviews and management policies.
  • Establishing a Diversity and Inclusion Committee, open to all employees, which is a follow up to the Diversity and Inclusion forum. This committee will prioritise actions to be taken and hold HelloFresh UK accountable for continued long- and short-term development and changes.

  • We know that this is just the beginning of the work we must all undertake to continue this conversation and ensure demonstrable change within our workplace and across the communities where we have influence.
