HelloFreshGO provides the most sustainable solution among different lunch alternatives

NOTE: The method followed schematically an ISO 14040 sustainability life cycle assessment. The system boundary was gate-to-gate, the considered impact categories only those mentioned. We only evaluated the emissions of a HelloFreshGO meal directly, while we relied on external peer-reviewed publications to evaluate other alternatives (e.g. restaurant eating). Given the novelty of HelloFreshGO’s products and the limited data availability to compare the emissions of alternative products, the results of this assessment are expected to have a higher degree of uncertainty than lifecycle assessments usually have.

HelloFreshGO Process and Practices

Sustainable Supply Chain Management

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

With our direct approach of sending food directly from suppliers to warehouses and then to you- we ensure less packaging waste than e.g supermarkets & restaurants. We do that by using our own fleet, own warehouses and introducing e-mobility soon.Our demand planning tool calculates exactly which products sell in a fridge and which get wasted and automatically adjusts the ordering accordingly.

Sustainable Packaging

By reducing plastic waste and increasing recyclability

Next to carefully establishing our menu, we also pay attention to the packaging in which our products are delivered. We use the most recyclable plastics for our packaging and use sustainable packaging whenever possible.  By focusing on paper and cardboard packaging, we are reducing our plastic waste. If plastic packaging is unavoidable, we focus on highly recyclable plastic, such as Halopack packaging or compostable plastics.

Sustainable Sourcing

By the choice of suppliers, products and the practices

We choose our suppliers of fresh as well as dry products  based on their location and their own values regarding sustainability. Our regional and seasonal product offers help us to effectively lower our carbon footprint. Amongst others, our suppliers include Jouis Nour and TONY’S CHOCOLONELY, who are committed to seasonal and organic ingredients as well as sustainable logistics and to banning slave labor respectively. By choosing sustainable logistics, we save 30 tons of CO2 per year
