Packaging Our packaging varies across our full range, this is down to supplier and availability. We use biodegradble or compostable packaging to pack our fresh products. Some items may come pre-packed.
Benchmarking We regularly cook with our fresh produce in our demonstration kitchen to see how the product holds up during the cooking process and of course most importantly, to taste the flavour and to educate our team.
Ingredient Sourcing We source our fresh produce direct from suppliers locally and globally, most of which are growers and exporters, this ensures fresh quality produce and better delivery.
When choosing suppliers, it is not only the product quality we care about but the way they source their products, how they treat their suppliers and the environment. We always check their accreditations, assurance certificates and whether they comply with ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative).
Quality Control Our produce goes through a three phase quality check programme to ensure the highest standards of quality and freshness. All of our products are checked as part of our goods in process when they are delivered. Any product that doesn’t align with our standards are rejected at this point. When the products have been worked and are in their designated pick locations we employ a team of people who are responsible for quality control; this involves every product every day being visually checked, and random selections from each product being cut into to check the fruit/vegetable beneath the outer skin is of the required standard. This team consists of former chefs and fresh produce buyers that have a wealth of experience in the industry. The final check is carried out by our night assembly team who visually check for quality when picking customer orders.
