Living a fast and busy lifestyle can often come at the expense of your health and diet. When life becomes hectic, it can be difficult to find the time to prepare a healthy meal and eat the way you know you should. The prospect of ordering fast food or having a microwavable dinner can be all too tempting at the end of a long, tiring day. However, sitting down to your ideal healthy meal doesn’t necessarily require a time-consuming trip to your local farmer’s market.

In today’s world, there is almost nothing that cannot be ordered online and that includes the freshest fruit and vegetables of the highest quality and most nutritional value. But the simplicity and ease of having organic and healthy food delivered right to your door isn’t the only benefit to be enjoyed when ordering a fresh fruit and vegetable box.

There are several reasons why you should be availing of a fresh fruit and veg delivery service and we have listed just some of those reasons below:


The Variety of a Fruit and Veg Box

When you order a fresh fruit and vegetable delivery, you can customise it to suit your tastes and preferences. However, you can also use this as an opportunity to try something new and expand your palate. There is a whole range of organic, healthy products on offer that you may not think to try otherwise.

When in your local supermarket, it is easy to automatically pick up the standard fruit and veg you always purchase. A fresh food delivery service can encourage you to be creative with your meals and experiment with different organic produce you may not have tried before. The variety found within a fruit and veg box can inspire you to get imaginative as well as healthy with your eating habits, exploring new tastes and potentially surprising yourself.


Fresh Food Deliveries Support Local Farmers

The products found in our fruit and veg boxes are locally sourced and grown by local farmers. Choosing to have fresh fruit and vegetables delivered to your door is a very simply but highly effective way of supporting not only local farmers but the local economy. It keeps the lifeblood flowing in your locality and creates jobs for your local friends, neighbours and community.

At the same time, you are giving less money and support to large companies of mass-produced food. This limits their power and potential to steal opportunities and chances for success from small, local businesses who may struggle to compete. With one simple act you can keep yourself and your local economy healthy and thriving.


The Sheer Freshness of a Fruit and Vegetable Box

When you have fruit and vegetables delivered to your door from local farms, they are as fresh as can possibly be. The fruit and vegetables found in supermarkets can often spend long weeks on board a shipping vessel, kept alive with unnatural and unhealthy chemicals. They can then spend days on end sitting on shelves, being handled by countless strangers and slowly turning stale and rotten.

The fruit and vegetables found in your delivery box have often been pulled from the earth just the day before and are chemical-free. This ensures optimum freshness and nutritional value. All this fresh, healthy produce hasn’t had very far to travel either, so, as an added bonus, you’ll know exactly where your food is coming from.

There are never any doubts or concerns of what you may be consuming when you order locally grown fruit and vegetables. It is also an effortless way to eat seasonally and keep your body in tune with the cycles of nature.


Help the Planet, Save the Environment

Ordering a fresh fruit and vegetables delivery is not just healthier for you but also for the planet. There is far less packaging and plastic used, with goods often simply placed in a cardboard box that can then be reused and recycled. This results in a big reduction in refuse and non-biodegradable waste. It also means you have less refuse to dispose of yourself, which can save you money.

The lack of chemicals used by local farmers also means that less chemicals enter our soil, waterways and air. These chemicals can have a very harmful impact on the environment and damage water supplies. Buying locally can have a positive impact all around the world.



Lastly, having a fruit and vegetable box delivered right to your door is far more convenient than any other means of obtaining fresh food. There are no long drives to the supermarket, no manoeuvring through crowded, busy aisles, no waiting in slow checkout lines and no packing and unpacking the car. Fruit and veg deliveries accommodate any type of busy lifestyle and free up so much of your time that could be better spent elsewhere. It can take up to two hours to travel to your local supermarket or farmer’s market and do your weekly shop. But ordering a fruit and veg delivery can be done within a matter of minutes.


These are just some of the many benefits of a fresh fruit and vegetables delivery and the positive changes they can afford both you and the planet. There is no longer a need to sacrifice your health and nutrition due to the time-demanding pressures of a fast-paced life. All the healthy, organic food you want to and should be eating has never been so accessible.
