1. Plan out your meals for the week

Planning out your meals for the week can help you from buying too much food, that will inevitably lead to more waste. Getting into the habit of planning out your meals for the week can be difficult, but we make it easy. Plan your meals seamlessly with Fresh Prepared.

 

2. Freeze what you can’t eat

Our freezers are our friends! Freezing meals that you are unable to eat throughout the week can prolong the freshness of your food. Fresh Prepared meals can be kept fresh in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days. If you don’t get around to eating the meals in 5-7 days, you can freeze what you don’t eat and save it for when you’re feeling hungry!

 

3. Portion control

Making sure your portions are correct can prevent you from throwing out uneaten food. That is why our individual meals are carefully portioned into single servings. We also offer family sized meals that are portioned for a group of four.

If you’re looking for ways to reduce your food waste, we’ve got you covered! Choose your favourite meals and we will deliver them to your door – without the hassle.
