It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the number of options out there in the Food Box market, so my aim is simply to try and guide you to the company that’s perfect for you. To help, I’ve pulled together a comparison of all Meal Kit and Prepared Meal services around. I’ve also included links to their sites and any special offers we’ve negotiated with them, to make sure you get the best value around.
There’s an explanation about each element of the comparison process at the bottom of this page.

How Should I Read The Comparison Tables?
Delivers To – Without being able to list every single postcode each company delivers to, we’ve had to make some generalisations. Each service has their own postcode checker to see if they deliver to your area so we recommend you check there before making a decision.
Unique Selling Point – Each service has their own space in the market that separates them from the competition. I’ve tried to summarise these in just a couple of words to give you a flavour of a company. Check out our detailed reviews to learn more about their USP.
Cost – These show the standard weekly prices based on a set number of portions. Where possible, I have used the ‘Standard’ or ‘Regular’ subscription offering.
* in some cases, the service doesn’t offer any options at either 6, 7 or 10 portions. To get a comparable result, I take the next portion option up (e.g 12 portions) and calculate the cost of 10 meals out of the 12.
Delivery Cost – This can vary by region, so make sure to check the cost for you at checkout.
