Cutting food waste is one of Gousto's founding principles. We want to make it easier to eat more sustainably, no matter how busy you are.
Rather than buying trolleys full of food for one recipe, our mission is to inspire the nation to cook brilliantly, with fresh ingredients that are delivered to your door. They’re all pre-measured, so none of it ends up in the bin.
We're continuing to work hard to make sure every Gousto meal is more planet-friendly by:
- Only ordering ingredients based on actual customer orders (rather than filling shelves based on estimated demand).
- Sending you precisely measured ingredients, so a lot less food is wasted.
- Developing a new system that calculates box sizes more accurately, so fewer lorries are needed to deliver the same number of recipes.
The food waste saved from an average Gousto box ( 3+ individual servings/portions) is 1.8kg. That’s nearly 7kg of greenhouse gas emissions saved!
