Review of Hello Fresh UK
HelloFresh was created to change the way the nation eats. The HelloFresh team believes that everyone should have access to the best ingredients and the knowledge to cook them, not just the experts and the enthusiasts, and that everyone should be able to cook great food for themselves, their friends, and family. The HelloFresh team also believes that everyone should be able to get their hands on beautiful, quality produce, not just those with the time and money to shop at speciality stores. That’s why the suppliers are carefully chosen to ensure that each ingredient delivered are fresh and of the highest quality.
HelloFresh is a weekly subscription program that provides chef-created recipes as well as all the fresh and high quality ingredients needed to cook at home. There are three types of HelloFresh subscriptions – The Classic Box, the Veggie Box, and the Family Box. The Classic Box is the most popular choice. It includes 3 or 5 delicious recipes and all the ingredients in the exact quantities needed for 2, 3, or 4 people. Meals are simple to prepare and takes under 30 minutes. The Veggie Box includes 3 tasty vegetarian recipes as well as the exact quantities of ingredients. The Family Box contains the exact ingredients for 4 delicious, healthy meals for the whole family each week. It will include the freshest ingredients and simple to follow recipe cards, as well as steps to get the kids in the kitchen. Aside from the weekly boxes, HelloFresh also offers a one-off order of Trial Classic Box which includes photo recipe cards and the exact ingredients needed to create 3 meals for 2 or 4 persons.
The price for a HelloFresh weekly subscription are calculated per meal or serving. A 3-meal Classic Box costs £39 for 2 persons and £59 for 4, while a 3-meal Veggie Box costs £36 and £57, respectively. A 5-meal Classic Box for 2 costs £49 and a 4-meal Family Box for 4 costs £64. Subscribers will be billed weekly depending on their subscription plans. Delivery of boxes are also done weekly and at no extra charge to the subscriber.
HelloFresh boxes are packaged using specialty insulation and environmentally friendly cooling agents in order to keep the groceries fresh, in whatever weather, provided the subscriber is able to transfer the contents to the fridge on the evening of the delivery. To reduce carbon footprint, HelloFresh partnered up with Collect+ so that the subscribers can send back any unwanted packaging, such as the wool liners and ice packs, to be reused. The wool liners and spice pots are biodegradable and can be added straight into the compost. Boxes and brown bags can be recycled. HelloFresh also partnered up with Love Food Hate Waste to help reduce food waste. The team only orders and send the exact quantities of ingredients needed for the deliveries each week, so no extra food is thrown away.
Ok - so you will actually have to cook but this is great value if you don't have the time or energy to think about what you want to cook and get the ingredients to make it. Hello Fresh make it really easy to eat well night after night
