About Us

Recycling & Packaging

As the world takes a positive turn towards eliminating single use plastic, unnecessary packaging and general waste, here at We are Food we are joining the movement and trying to make effective changes wherever possible.
Our waste management includes full disclosure of our water and electricity consumption, as well as waste and recycling figures by the gram. We believe that offer meals that are more efficient and less wasteful than cooking a meal yourself.
All recyclable cardboard, paper, tins, glass and plastic used in our kitchen, wherever possible, is cleaned, separated and collected by our local recyclers PAT Recycling. They even pay us back for all the recycling they collect, this money is used for internal team development and outings, so our staff are even more motivated to recycle.
As producers of high quality, ready-made meals for your freezer, we need good, strong, freezer grade packaging to extend our products shelf life and travel from our kitchen to your door without destruction. This means we can’t yet eliminate all plastic and excess packaging, but we are constantly working towards greener packaging solutions.
Our plastic tubs are BPA-free, heat resistant in the microwave and dishwasher safe They can be safely reused and are 100% recyclable. They are PP #5.

Our aluminium foil containers are microwave and oven safe and 100% recyclable.

Our cardboard boxes and meal sleeves are made from recycled paper, the coating is water-based and food grade compliant, and they are 100% recyclable.

Our paper and plastic carrier bags are recyclable or biodegradable. You can add them to your compost, just tear them up into small pieces.
