Did you know that studies have shown that meal-kit companies have a smaller environmental impact than commercial grocery stores? With a much shorter supply chain, and by sourcing ingredients directly from small-scale farms, UCOOK’s overall emissions are drastically reduced.
While you will find plastic packaging in your box, we’ve only used the minimum amount needed, and are striving every week to find more innovative solutions to keep your ingredients fresh.
We also believe in zero food waste, which is why the ingredients you receive every week are pre-portioned. In South Africa, 10 million tons of food goes to waste every year. We’re committed to reducing that number.
