Preventing unnecessary food waste has been a central part of our ethos since day one. Did you know that HelloFresh creates less food waste than retail grocery stores? We do this by perfectly portioning the ingredients you need for each meal. So there’s less prep for you, and less wasted food*.
Our carbon footprint is 25% lower than that of meals made from store-bought groceries, thanks to a streamlined supply chain and more efficient distribution, which reduce greenhouse gas emissions, according to a University of Michigan Study*.
Responsible ingredient sourcing means getting to know our suppliers far beyond what you read on the label. We aim to get as close to the source of our supply as possible, visiting supplier facilities In person to ensure they meet our standards.
We are conscious that there must be a balance between sending a fresh, high-quality, safe product and ensuring that we do this with a minimum of packaging. Our packaging team is continuously testing new materials and products to ensure we are meeting our sustainability goals at the same time.
Together with Plastic Bank®️, HelloFresh has set up three plastic collection centers in Indonesia. Over the next three years, these centers will prevent an equivalent of 37.5 million plastic bottles (1.6 million pounds) from entering the ocean while also supporting vulnerable communities.
