About us

Since 1988, we’ve believed that food has the power to save the world. We’re on a mission to make shopping sustainably simple, putting people and our planet first every step of the way.

SENDING SINGLE-USE PLASTIC PACKING

Our purpose

We want to provide easy ways to help the planet. That’s why we put in all the hard work behind the scenes, from sourcing the finest, organic food to reducing unnecessary packaging, so all you have to do is choose your sustainable, weekly shop. From supporting independent growers and makers to cutting carbon emissions, every organic box that lands on your doorstep makes a world of difference. Combatting climate change is no small feat, and our work will never be done. But together, we really can make big changes feel bite-sized.

Protecting our planet

KEEPING FOOD MILES LOW

Our planet

We know that everything we do has an impact on our planet, and are committed to treading as lightly as possible. That’s why we champion 100% organic or sustainably wild food. Organic means naturally nutritious food that doesn’t cost the earth, and where the animals come first. Organic farming is also a kinder, more holistic way of tending to the land that helps protect our soil and boosts biodiversity. But our commitment to putting the planet first goes beyond what we put on our plates. It’s in our DNA and influences every decision we make, from our carbon-efficient delivery model to our innovative refillables service, Club Zero. Since day one, we’ve pioneered a low-plastic approach to life, and estimate that our returnable, cardboard boxes have saved over 65,000,000 plastic bags, and counting.

CHAMPIONING ORGANIC

Our people

Our people make us who we are. We work with independent, organic growers and makers, so by shopping with us, you’re helping to support local communities and workers’ rights, both at home and further afield. We’re a proud member of the B Corp community, dedicated to using business as a force for good. Giving back is incredibly important to us, and we’re always looking for ways to drive positive change in our community, whether by packing food parcels or planting trees. We also make sure to champion our teams, and work hard to create a positive workplace, in which everyone feels valued and heard. That’s why we’re a Living Wage accredited employer, committed to equal Gender Pay, have pledged to the Mental Health at Work Commitment, and founded our own Equality & Inclusivity Committee with an Anti-Racism Charter.
