We're going to spit some science, hope you don't mind. 👨🔬🎤
To keep our meals super fresh in transit, we use modified atmospheric packaging. The modified atmosphere of the meals consists of N2 & CO2 found in the surrounding air, only enriched/concentrated. This improves the shelf life of fresh food by 200% or more compared to packaging in air. 📦
This process lowers the amount of oxygen which slows the growth of aerobic organisms and the speed of oxidation reactions. It's safe and allows our meals to withstand 60 hours of travel and delivery time, without ever using preservatives. Recycled denim insulation (paper fiber and foam starch insulation liners out of our east coast kitchen) and non-toxic gel packs keep the meals under a cool 40°F until you place them in your fridge.
A friendly head's up, it's totally okay if your gel packs arrive partially melted! Your meals should still be cool to the touch.
