Create a Health Restaurant at Home

We all love our fresh grub, but with busy schedules, short shelf lives and the occasional pandemic, sometimes frozen food is the way to go! You might be worried that frozen meals and ingredients just don’t have the same nutritional value as their fresh counterparts, but that’s just not the case. In fact, most frozen fruits and veggies are harvested at peaked ripeness and immediately washed, blanched and frozen, meaning that they arrive at your doorstep bursting with flavour and goodness! On top of that, buying frozen reduces food waste both in the supermarket and your home.

We’ve stocked our freezers with a huge range of yummy goodies that will suit every taste and diet, from restaurant-quality meals and free-range meat products to vegan treats and decadent desserts. We’ve put together a list of just a few of our favourite superstar brands and products, so hop on the home cooking bandwagon and find your new frozen favourites today!

Choose from a mouth-watering selection of lovingly-made curries, pasta dishes, pies and sides (hello potato gratin for two!). Believe us when we say that you will never find a frozen meal so fancy.

This list wouldn’t be complete without a product by yours truly! We’re super excited about our new gluten-free coconut wraps, which can be frozen and enjoyed as delicious breakfast tortillas, ooey-gooey quesadillas, or a light lunch.

TASTY TREATS

Fruzo

The best way to get your fruity fix!
