How do I reheat my meals?

Our personal favourite is in on the Cooktop: Empty your meal into a saucepan and heat on high until hot.

Microwave: Pierce the film lid, and heat for 3-4 minutes, depending on your microwave power

Oven: Place your meal into an oven-safe container and heat at 180degrees for 8-10 minutes

packaging & freshness

Is your packaging recyclable?

Here at Garden of Vegan we are conscious and aware of our impact on the environment. All our packaging is 100% recyclable and we focus minimising waste at every turn.Our packaging is also 100% BPA free.

We care about our planet, so you don’t have to worry about our packaging or processes. We package our delivery boxes with non-toxic ice packs and 100% recyclable insulation.! The gel inside the ice packs is non-toxic, water soluble, and safe for septic systems and the plastic encasing for them is recyclable. The plastics we use for our actual meal containers, however, are completely recyclable, as well as reusable.

Packaging - How are my meals individually packaged?

All our meals are packaged in microwavable containers with a plastic film. The trays are microwave-safe, do not release BPA, or other harmful chemicals when heated, and are made with a manufacturing process that is 30% cleaner than other plastic manufacturing. This type of plastic can be directly recycled, significantly reducing its carbon footprint and ensuring it does not end up in the landfills or oceans.

How long do your packages stay fresh after shipment?

We design our packages to withstand two full days of shipment, plus fours in the warmer months and eight hours in the cooler months after delivery. Please note, when you receive your Garden of Vegan package, it is not unusual for your ice packs to be partially melted. You would just want to make sure that the meals are cool to the touch, which is the tell-tale sign that all is well!

Once you have received your meals, they will have their individual expiry dates on the back.

How do you keep my meals fresh?

We use a specific type of modified atmospheric packaging in your deliveries to keep your food zesty and fresh. Modified atmosphere is where the composition of the internal atmosphere of a package is modified to improve the longevity of your meals. In order to improve the shelf life, modified atmosphere packaging can extend the practical shelf life of fresh foods by 200% or more compared to packaging in air.

Some of our snacks (not our meals) are also snap frozen to lock in nutrition and keep your food at it's optimal freshness.

The modification process lowers the amount of oxygen (O2), moving it from 20.9% to 0% in order to slow down the growth of aerobic organisms and the speed of oxidation reactions. This process is safe and allows food to last longer without the use of preservatives.

We also keep your food fresh using custom insulation and non-toxic ice packs.

shipping & delivery

Do I need to be home to receive my meals?

Not at all! You do not need to be home for your Garden of Vegan delivery! The third party carriers we use will leave our packages at your door without a signature required to ensure that the box is delivered in a timely manner, since our meals are perishable.

What time of the day will i receive my meals?

The time when your meals are delivered can vary and depending on many circumstances, as well as how many packages they have to handle and when they’ll be servicing your area. The delivery time for your meals could therefore be earlier in the day or as late as the early evening. Nevertheless, please know that we design our packages to withstand 2 full days of shipment, plus four in the warmer months and eight hours in the cooler months, either way, your food will arrive fresh!

When do I receive my meals?

We deliver between 6am - 6pm on the day specified for your area, this is based on your delivery address.
