When you unpack your box, we always recommend putting all meat and seafood in the fridge as soon as possible. You can also put them in the freezer if you’d like to cook them a bit later.
Please note, any items which are not suitable for freezing will have a “do not freeze” statement on the pack.
Please note, the following ingredients are not suitable for re-freezing:
- Any crustaceans (prawns) and molluscs (scallops) that you receive in your box.
- Any items which are not suitable for freezing marked “Do not freeze” statement on the packaging.
Please remember: Make sure you fully defrost any meat or fish in the fridge before cooking. Never refreeze them once defrosted, and cook them within 24 hours of defrosting. Refreezing foods can affect texture and food safety, so it’s really important to follow these guidelines carefully.
Can I freeze cooked recipes?
You can freeze your cooked recipes too, unless otherwise stated on labels. Make sure these recipes have cooled to room temperature within an hour of cooking before you freeze them, and use within one month of freezing.
When reheating, make sure the meal is piping hot before serving (if you have a thermometer, this will be 75°C for 30 seconds).
