NOTE: The method schematically followed a sustainability life cycle analysis according to ISO 14040. The system boundary was gate-to-gate, and the impact categories considered were only those mentioned. We directly assessed only the emissions from a HelloFreshGO meal, while relying on external peer-reviewed publications to assess other alternatives (e.g., eating at a restaurant). Given the novelty of HelloFreshGO products and the limited data availability to compare emissions of alternative products, the results of this assessment are expected to be subject to a higher degree of uncertainty than is typically the case for life cycle analyses

Sustainable supply chain management

By optimizing our transport routes, planning demand and keeping the supply chain as short as possible.

With our supply chain, food is transported directly from suppliers to warehouses and then to you. We ensure less packaging waste than, for example, supermarkets and restaurants. We achieve this through our own suppliers, warehouses and the soon introduction of electric vehicles. Our planning tool calculates exactly which products will be sold in a refrigerator and automatically adjusts orders accordingly.

Sustainable packaging

By reducing plastic waste and increasing the use of recyclable packaging.

In addition to the careful composition of our menu, we also pay attention to the packaging in which our products are delivered. We use the highest grade of recyclable plastic and use sustainable packaging whenever possible. By focusing on paper and cardboard packaging, we reduce our plastic waste. When plastic packaging is unavoidable, we use highly recyclable plastics, such as Halopack packaging or compostable plastics.


Sustainable product procurement

Through the targeted selection of suppliers, products and practices.

We select our suppliers based on their location and their own values regarding sustainability. Our regional and seasonal product offerings help us effectively reduce our carbon footprint. Our suppliers include Jouis Nour and TONY’S CHOCOLONELY, which use seasonal and organic ingredients. Jouis Nour, for example, additionally commits to sustainable logistics and TONY’S CHOCOLONELY to a ban on slave labor. By choosing suppliers with sustainable logistics, we save 30 tons of CO2 per year.
