What's inside a Fruit & Veg Box?

Getting in touch with growers
Surprise Oddbox

Here’s the fun bit. Instead of giving growers a shopping list each week, we flip the food system and ask them what fruit and veg they’ve picked and what’s going spare. We call this ‘grower-led eating’. If there’s space in our boxes, we then speak to growers from further afield. We’d rather rescue fruit and veg from abroad than see it go to waste, but don’t worry – we have a strict no-air-miles policy. So you might find a cabbage from Lincolnshire, potatoes from Suffolk and a pineapple from Costa Rica, all in the same box. Surprise!

Choose what to leave out...

Each week we’ll email you a list of all the fresh fruit and vegetables we’ve rescued.

If you’re not a fan of something or have lots left over from your last fruit and veg delivery, you can add it to your ‘exclusions’ list which is under ‘preferences’ in your account.

You can choose up to three things to exclude from your box each week. And – as long as it’s before your cut-off time – we'll surprise you by replacing them with other freshly rescued fruit and veg.

... and what to add in.

Piccolo tomatoes? Passion fruit? Or a punnet of juicy gooseberries?

Each week we’ll email you our ‘add-ons’ list – extra-special, last-minute rescues that you can add to your fruit and veg delivery that week for a small cost.

Be quick though, when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Fruit & veg boxes in all shapes and sizes.

Small, medium or large? Once a week or every fortnight? Pick your pear-fect box based on how many people you live with and how much fruit and veg you eat.

If you want to change your fresh fruit and veg delivery, or add another box, just head to ‘my subscriptions’ in your account. As long as it’s before your cut-off time (four days before your next box), you can switch things up in just a few clicks.

Wake up to a delivery of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Just like the milkman, our fruit and veg deliveries happen overnight, so your box will be waiting when you wake up. We do this to keep emissions low – fewer cars on the roads means less stopping and starting.

Each area has its only delivery night, so you’ll know when to expect us. You can tell us exactly where to leave your fruit and veg box. And we’ll email you a photo to let you know where to find it.

How your box makes a difference.

CO2 Cloud
H2O Water Droplets

Around 40% of all food grown goes uneaten, wasting with it, a humongous amount of CO2e and water. Fruit and veg can be at risk of going to waste for all kinds of reasons – it could be “too big”, “too odd” or just “too many”. By rescuing instead of shopping, you’ll be helping make a difference to the planet. One curvy cucumber at a time.

Happy Customers.
