Meal kits and interest in delivery options have skyrocketed during the pandemic. As consumers continued to explore their kitchen and the wonders of at-home cooking, companies are jumping at the chance to fill that need for variety and convenience in this ever-growing market. Prep To Your Door, founded by Faiez Rana and Heather Emerson, is bringing organic, ready-to-eat, meal delivery service that guarantees zero waste in a closed-loop delivery model—and is a platform to keep on the radar.
“Food is medicine, and a lot of products are looking to capitalize on that trend,” Rana remarked. “But processed food makes up 70 percent of America’s diet, and we need more than a slogan and good marketing to make that norm a reality. We need to create a paradigm shift.”
According to the release, the brand focuses on serving locally sourced, ready-to-eat, organic, plant-based meals that are good for the body, the planet, and emphasizes sustainability at every step. Rana’s aspiration is to serve his customers nutritious and delicious food while laying the groundwork for the future of a fresh food system. By using glass jars and real ingredients, the company maintains its sustainability goal all while meeting the nutritional needs consumers are looking for.
“The way we grow, buy, and process food is creating environmental and health consequences at unprecedented rates, including deforestation, soil degradation, ocean pollution, and unparalleled rates of preventable chronic illness,” Rana continued. “The connection between food, health, and the planet is clear. However, even with an eagerness to change, most people don’t know where to start.”
Through cultivating a network of organic farmers, developing proprietary supply chain technology, and the talents of their culinary team, Prep To Your Door is able to deliver farm fresh meals in a uniquely zero waste experience that is good for customers and the environment. As consumers have resonated with the sustainable and nutritious trends, Prep To Your Door has doubled growth each year and has grown from a team of two to a team of forty.
Each financial quarter Prep To Your Door has opened new markets and increasingly expanded its delivery zones. In 2021, the company will deliver over 150,000 meals without any single-use plastic, reusing every jar in a closed-loop model while proudly serving over 100,000 pounds of locally grown, organic produce to their happy customers.
