Meal Delivery Kit Packaging - December 2018

Meal kits include pre-portioned and sometimes partially prepared food ingredients and recipes to prepare home cooked meals. The kits are typically mailed once a week to subscribers, or purchased from grocery stores, packaged in a box with basic instructions on how to turn them into different meals, and ice packs to keep it all cold. This industry claims to offer the potential to reduce wasted food, yet it also creates a significant environmental impact, in particular from packaging.
