Do your meals contain gluten?
Some of our meals do you contain gluten however most do not.

Do your meals contain oil?
We use extra olive oil sparingly in our meals. Other oils may be present so please check ingredients.

Is your packaging recyclable?
At Eden Bondi Meals, we are on a Zero Waste mission and we are extremely conscious of our carbon footprint and minimising waste. Our purpose driven restaurant promotes sustainability. All of our packaging is either recyclable, partly compostable or partly reusable! We have searched the market to find a non-plastic packaging solution however there is nothing on the market available to us yet. The initial plan was to launch Eden Bondi Meals with sugarcane pulp, which is 100% compostable and biodegradable. However, after thorough research and testing of the meals in these products, we established that they are not safe for human consumption unless consumed within 3 hours of packaging. This is because the moisture from the food is absorbed from the sugarcane, with the potential to cause adverse health effects. We are working very closely with our supplier and as a team, working very hard to find a more sustainable solution which will be available in a matter of months.

We kindly ask you to return plastic packaging to us so we can reuse again and again because even if it’s damaged, plastic can still have another lease of life. We have made it as simple as possible to return your packaging, free of charge.

Here is a summary of our current solution:

Tray and seal:

- Our meals are packed in 100% recyclable trays. The sticker and seal is 100% BPA free. These types of plastics are safe to heat and can be directly recycled which means they don’t end up in landfill or oceans.

The box & ice Packs:

- Our box is 100% recyclable and reusable. Our ice packs are non-toxic, 100% reusable and water soluble. These are also 100% recyclable and reusable and BPA free.
- Our thermal liners are also 100% reusable and great for a picnic basket if you’d like to keep one. Ideally, we would love for you to send us back the trays, ice packs, thermal liners and the box each Tuesday when your next delivery is delivered. This way we can reuse them again for another delivery. Alternatively, if you forget to leave them outside, or pause your subscription, the cardboard box, ice packets and thermal liners can be dropped in the designated recycle boxes at your local Coles and Woolworths where they will be repurposed.

How are my meals individually packaged?
All our meals are packaged in microwavable containers with a plastic film. The trays are microwave-safe, do not release BPA when heated, and are made with a manufacturing process that is 30% cleaner than other plastic manufacturing. This type of plastic can be directly recycled, significantly reducing its carbon footprint and ensuring it does not end up in landfills or our oceans.

How long do your packages stay fresh after delivery?
We design our packages to withstand 12 hours in the box after being delivered. Please note, when you receive your Eden Bondi Meals package, it is not unusual for your gel packs to be partially melted. You just need to make sure that the meals are still cool to the touch. We recommend meals are consumed within 5 days from delivery. We cannot guarantee a longer shelf-life as we are not using any harmful preservatives in our meals.

Do I need to be at home to receive my meals?
No you don’t! Our couriers will leave the meals outside your door ready for when you come home.

When will I receive my meals?
We deliver every Tuesday from 10am – 7pm.

 

Are you taking any extra measures to ensure safety of customer during COVID-19 outbreak?

At Eden we pride ourselves in applying the highest measure of hygiene at all times. To ensure safety of our staff and customers, our chefs now use gloves and face masks at all time. While we would usually offer the option to pick up, sanitise and reuse our containers and boxes, due to the COVID-19 outbreak this option is currently unavailable as health and safety of our staff and customers is our utmost priority.
