FAQ'Syour questions answered

  • what allergens are your meals free from?

    Gluten, wheat, dairy and nuts. Most of our meals are free from soya and eggs too, but please check each individual pack’s details (available on our website) or contact us.

    Where are your meals made?

    In sunny Malton by happy Yorkshire folk!

    Can I freeze your meals?

    You can freeze all our meals for up to 6 months except our Spicy Meatballs with Rainbow Vegetti which is best cooked from chilled.

    Why is the shelf-life longer than three days?

    We steam cook our meals in their packs to lock in nutrients and flavours. This elongates their shelf-life naturally.

    Are your meals suitable for children?

    Yes! We were asked this question so often we now have a new range of meals designed especially for children aged 2 to 9 called Kids’ Kitchen.

    Are your ingredients organic?

    Some of our veg and pulses are, but we can’t claim this on pack as not everything we use is.

  • Do you use preservatives or additives?

    Oh no, we will never add anything unnatural to our foods!

    Are you accredited by Coeliac UK?

    We are very proud to be, yes! Look out for their official Crossed Grain Symbol on our packaging.

    Is your meat free range?

    No, not currently but it is all responsibly sourced.

    Is your beef British?

    Yes, always.

    How long do I cook them for?

    Each meal has its own set of cooking guidelines. Usually they take between 4 and 5 minutes in the microwave or 20-25 minutes in the oven.

    Can you cook them in the oven?

    Yes. Our Beef Lasagne and Cottage Pie meals taste particularly lovely when they’ve been cooked in the oven.

  • Are there any jobs going?

    Not this week! However, we do post them on Twitter and LinkedIn occasionally.

    Do you have any vouchers for meals?

    Not right now sorry, but we regularly promote in store.

    I would like to contact Kirsty, how do I do this?

    Very easily via Facebook and Twitter or email us via the website and my team will make sure I get to see it.

    Are your meals suitable for Vegetarians/Vegans?

    Our Malaysian Butternut Squash Curry with Brown Basmati Rice is perfect for vegetarians/vegans. Little ones (and grown ups) will love our Kids’ Kitchen Lentil and Butternut Squash Pie with Sweet Potato Mash.

    Why can’t I find your meals in my local store?

    Have you looked down the chilled meals aisle? Please ask in store as they may be able to stock it for you.

    I would like to review your meals for my blog. Can I have samples?

    Please contact us with details of your blog and we will certainly look at it and get back to you.

  • Can I eat these on a diet?

    Most definitely! We are a super healthy food brand. Each meal contains healthy food swaps and are mostly green traffic lights!
