    Had my first delivery last week. Totally amazed by the quality and value of what’s in the box. Highly recommended and I will be getting another one .

    I have ordered a few of these now and can’t believe the outstanding value you get with these ‘waste not boxes’. Each time we have received a box they come with a plenty of fresh fruit and veg and a good variety of meat, fish and ready meals. It’s hard to believe that supermarkets are actually prepared throw the produce away.

    I actually get quite excited when I get these delivered!!! Thank you so much

  3. Dean Smith

    Fantastic value particular given that all of the contents would essentially go to ‘waste’ if not purchased. Always great variety of contents which still have a decent amount of shelf life or you can stick a lot of stuff straight in the freezer. Easily enough for 4-5 good healthy meals from scratch

  4. Sarah Stenson

    These boxes are absolutely amazing value for money. We’ve had a few and each time they have been packed full of all sorts of fantastic items – fruit, veg, meat/fish, cheese or other dairy products, bread, crisps, pasta.. lots of it organic or branded stuff too. It’s so sad that this really good food could have otherwise gone to landfill. We haven’t had a single item we haven’t been happy with and it’s saved us lots of money too.

    I’ve had 3 of these boxes now and each one has been fabulous! Fresh and tasty and as though you’ve really thought about the meals that can be made with the ingredients added.

    I’ve ordered two boxes and both times been pleasantly surprised with the quality and variety of products and the bonus of saving perfectly good food from landfill. Amazing.

    Just received our first box and packed full of fruit and veg, dairy and meat products. Great value its unbelievable this is classed as waste by retailers.

  11. Helen Kirkup

    We have had two of these boxes now and we’ve been very happy with what we have received. It’s been a mix of things we regularly buy and needed, and other items that we have enjoyed finding recipes to use them in. Thank you so much!

    I really enjoy trying out new dishes from our Waste Not Box when there are exciting things like fresh figs and a plantain . Typically there is enough for me to make 4-5 dinners for our family of three.
