Our Food

With our broad and bountiful menu, we aim to revolutionise the way you cook and entertain. Allowing you the freedom to still do this in your own kitchen, without any of the fuss, waste or stress that comes with the dreaded task of cooking at home. This is a task we simply adore… coming up with new and exciting, scrummy dishes for our menu. Our customers can stock up their freezers for any occasion, whether it be a simple family dinner, a weekend of entertaining or even catering for your entire Christmas feast! We aim to offer the highest quality meals at your convenience, with no added preservatives or bizarre, unheard of cooking methods. Our food is made just the way you would make it, using the same ingredients and techniques you would at home.

Our Vision

We have a simple goal, to build a company with longevity – leave a legacy! A well-run, honest and people-focused establishment which will outlive us all. We aren’t trend-setters (quite frankly, none of us are trendy) but instead we believe in quality, great service, slow-cooking and eating with enjoyment. Our hope is that you too can experience all these things we love when you place your first We are Food meal into the oven, and sit back to enjoy.

Our Kitchen

We pride ourselves in a hands-on approach, leaving human tasks to humans because food always tastes better with a little TLC (and we aren’t quite ready for the robot apocalypse yet). Every stage of our process, from ingredient selection and quality-control, weighing and measuring for recipes, prepping, cooking and dishing up is done by hand by passionate, patient and well-trained individuals. Our freezing processes follow a method we are extremely proud of. We have literally scoured the globe to find the right method for preserving our meals, and we truly believe we have achieved this, while still maintaining a remarkable flavour and quality. We love our kitchen, and you will too. Get in touch and we can organise a tour for you and some friends.

Our People

At We are Food we see business as a two-prong opportunity. Not only as an important part of our local economy, creating jobs within and around us as a result of good business practices, but we also see a well-run business as the ideal vessel to do good. We are extremely passionate about this country, and the role business plays in its’ future growth. We view our business as a chance to be a positive influence, from feeding schemes, staff upliftment, community fundraisers and future generation programmes, we love the platform we have been given to reach out.

Our Guarantee

At We are Food we believe in honesty and integrity in business, and we’re not just saying this because it sounds good. We truly strive to build a business where we not only follow good business practices, produce a good, honest product we can be proud of, but also treat our staff, suppliers and customers with the respect and kindness we hope to see spread throughout our community.

We are so proud of the products we are able to create in our kitchens, from inception to production each process is well thought out, practiced, monitored and done with absolute care for the sake of our customers and the longevity of our business. So we arrived at our “freshly-frozen guarantee”. This allows you, our customer, to put complete trust in us to; follow recipes, ingredient lists and high cooking standards when producing your meals, to freeze the meals in the safest and most hygienic process we can, allowing for a high-quality tasting product on your table, and to treat the product, from the minute it arrives in our kitchen as a raw ingredient to when we hand it over to you, with the love and care it deserves as a meal for your family.
