Sustainable Food

A Happy Farmer

We believe in sourcing high quality, local produce; and in limiting the food miles between where our food is grown and your plate as much as possible. Food miles contribute to a number of environmental issues; increasing the level of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and contributing to global warming. These days over half of the UK’s vegetables and 95% of our fruit comes from abroad, and much of it is flown by plane. Choosing Gousto enables you to make a positive step towards reducing the food miles that your produce travels.

We only buy meat from local British suppliers & butchers with high standards in sustainability and welfare. Likewise, our award-winning free-range eggs come from a farmer based a mere 2 miles from our storehouse. In egg miles that’s less than a stone (or egg’s) throw! We are continually working to find new reputable, local suppliers of quality food, so that every Gousto meal has minimal food miles and respects environmental sustainability.
