Comparison of ready-to-cook meal delivery services

Companies such as Market GoodFood™, Cook it™, MissFresh™, Chefs Plate™ and HelloFresh™ that offer ready-to-cook meal delivery deliver at home all the ingredients and recipe cards needed for your chosen meals . Delivery is by box or bag with a chilled section allowing the ingredients to stay fresh during transport.

Why meal kits?


Eat healthy

Ready-to-cook is a healthy alternative to ready-to-eat because it allows you to cook fresh foods and to dose yourself the amounts of fat and salt. In addition, the proposed recipes are generally balanced and complete. In addition, the recipes offered are generally balanced, often created with a nutritionist, and are perfect for your dinners.

Save times

The menu of the week is done in a few clicks and the ingredients are delivered once a week. Ready-to-cook companies aim to help people eat a varied, healthy, tasty and local diet while eliminating the planning time this can involve. No more headache and back and forth to the grocery store. In addition, most companies strive to create quick and simple recipes to reduce the time spent in the kitchen. Goodfood and Chefs plate offer specific plans for 15-minute recipes, while Cook it includes them on its regular menu and offers Express Dishes recipes. To make your life even easier, Cook it also offers you the possibility of receiving ready-to-eat meals (to be reheated in the microwave) for busy evenings.

Cooking is fun

The fact that you have all the ingredients in exact quantities as well as recipe and clear recipe cards make meal preparation easy and pleasant, even novices can make dishes worthy of restaurants. The discovery of new ingredients, methods and dishes completes the experience.


The first meal kit delivery was made in 2007 by Middagsfrid (meaning “peace of the dinner”) in Sweden. But the concept has been taken over and popularized worldwide by the German company HelloFresh, which has since offered the service on 3 continents. In the United States, Blue Apron and Plated made the concept known. Internationally, the meal box sector is booming.
