Here’s a list of our favourite boxes in the UK to help you find the right fit for your needs!

BoxxFresh’s mission is to bring people closer to where their produce comes from by delivering local goods straight to their door. Their boxes are completely customisable, so if you want more carrots than courgettes, you’ve got the freedom to make it your own!

The Organic Delivery Company

It’s all in the name. The Organic Delivery Company delivers boxes of fresh, organic goods and seasonal produce. Whether you want a mix of fruit and veg, just fruit, just veg, or even a salad ingredient box, they’ll have the right one for you.

Riverford

At Natracare HQ, we’re loyal customers to the Riverford team. Each week, we get fresh organic fruits delivered for the whole team to enjoy! The seasonal selections means we can get creative when it comes to what fruity desserts we’re baking – pear crumble is a current favourite in the kitchen. They also offer deliveries of seasonal veg and organic meat.

OddBox

We mentioned OddBox in our top 10 zero waste shops too, because we love what they do. Committed to fighting food waste and tackling the global problem, OddBox work directly with farmers and growers to whisk away their wonky fruit and send them to you instead. Plus, 10% of their produce is donated to local charities.
