Our Fresh Ingredients

The following principles govern how we pick the ingredients for your HelloFresh boxes:
  • We try to use as few imported ingredients as possible to protect the environment and help Australian farmers.
  • We only work with trusted, local suppliers. All our suppliers are subject to regular quality controls.
  • A fair go for farmers: we get as high up the value chain as we can in order to deal directly with small family-owned businesses – too many producers are missing their fair share when it comes to feeding Australians.
  • Information: get the skinny on any pre-packaged ingredients we may use here.
  • We focus on ensuring that our meals always contribute to a healthy diet.
Calories

Our recipes are designed to give you all the energy and nutrients  you need for your day, without an unnecessarily high number of  calories. A typical HelloFresh meal contains 500-750 calories.

Vegetarian

The Vegetarian box includes three tasty vegetarian meals per week. The Classic Box includes one vegetarian meal per week.

Meat and Fish

Meat and fish are important parts of most meals, as they supply important nutrients and proteins. When buying meat or fish, we always ensure high quality.

Fruit and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables provide us with essential vitamins and other valuable nutrients. Accordingly, they are an important part of our HelloFresh boxes.

Carbohydrates, dietary fibre and whole grains

For pasta, rice and other carbohydrate-rich products, we always make sure that there is a high proportion of whole grain. Products with a high proportion of whole grain contain more essential fatty acids and are therefore considered to be healthier.

Fat

In putting together our recipes, we minimise the amount of unhealthy fats, and use low fat cooking techniques to retain as much nutrition in your food as possible.

Allergies and Intolerances

Unfortunately, we are unable to cater for special allergies or intolerances at this early stage. However, many of our customers who have allergies in the family find that our HelloFresh boxes work well for them. Since HelloFresh boxes only contain unprocessed ingredients, it is possible to omit, or replace, any ingredient that could cause an allergic reaction.
