Environmentally Friendly Meal Prep
SupperWorks provides a more environmentally friendly meal prep option so that you can enjoy delicious and nutritious meals while still being conscious of excess packaging and food waste.
During the last few years, there’s been a surge in popularity for delivered meal kits—but as many Canadians have discovered—these services often produce an extraordinary amount of waste. Usually, each separate ingredient is individually wrapped in single-use plastic and packaged in a shipping box.
Even with all the packaging waste, a recent study in the Resources, Conservation and Recycling journal found that meal kits are actually more environmentally friendly than grocery stores. Their conclusions focus on the fact that grocery stores waste a lot of food, which can negatively impact the environment.
How SupperWorks is Different
At SupperWorks, we ingredient prep in bulk, which allows for a more environmentally friendly prep service. After washing, slicing, and dicing ingredients, we store them in refrigerated, reusable containers – not single use packing – ready for our customers to use in their assembly or for us to handmake orders for pick up or delivery. We recycle all of our cans, boxes, glass and paper at SupperWorks and we encourage our customers to bring a reusable cooler to transport their assembled meals home. Any packaging we provide can be recycled in the regular blue bins in many municipalities.
Another way SupperWorks is conscious of our environmental footprint is to reduce the amount of food that’s wasted in our stores. We purchase and prep ingredients to order, so we don’t overbuy products that will later have to be thrown out—allowing us to have virtually zero food waste at all of our locations. Our customers have also told us that using SupperWorks has allowed them to reduce their food waste at home.
More environmentally friendly meal prep is a viable option when you partner with SupperWorks. We believe it’s important to provide our customers with quality meals—while doing our part to be conscious of packaging and food waste.
If you’re new to SupperWorks, you can save $25 on your first order.
SupperWorks has been helping Canadians meal prep since 2005. We were the first meal-assembly kitchen in Canada and after 14 years we’ve still providing our customers with delicious and nutritious main dishes and sides.
