WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
We were bored. Bored of spending our money on the same lame meal deals for lunch. Day in. Day out. Boring, unhealthy and bland. Something had to change. We travelled the world. We discovered new recipes. We awakened our taste buds. Packed Lunches was born. Now you no longer need to stand in the supermarket contemplating. Dreading. We cook and you eat, it's as simple as that. Choose your meal choices for next week and place your order. We source the freshest local ingredients and prepare your meals. You can collect and enjoy the fruits of our labour wherever you are. At home, at work, on the train, whilst shopping, on a boat... well you catch our drift. We look forward to taking your order, Matt & Jo - Packed Lunches
We want to be a sustainable business - and our ultimate goal is to not only be zero waste, but to also help grow and nurture the environment. Here are some of our sustainable aims: Reduce plastic Our ultimate aim is to be plastic free - from the produce we receive from suppliers, to the meals we serve to our customers. All of our meals are served in fully compostable packaging, meaning you can enjoy your lunches safe in the knowledge that we're not adding to the 5 million tonnes of plastic waste thrown away each year. Even the carrier bags and labels are plastic free - result! Reduce food waste Your meals are cooked-to-order meaning we're able to source the freshest ingredients after you've placed your order. This system helps us with our goal to reduce the 7.3 tonnes of household food waste the UK throws away each year. Reduce emissions We'll be looking at ways we can reduce CO2 emissions, with our cycle couriers pedal-powering their way around town to assist with our delivery drivers. We're also aiming to have a fully electric fleet of vehicles by 2020! Where possible we order all of our produce from local suppliers, meaning your food travels less food miles and is better for the environment! Green energy We want all the energy we use to be 100% green. Watch this space for further information on how we go about this!
