GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED Meal delivery kits and all their convenient glory have been steadily gaining popularity for the past decade, and while the ease of a weekly box of food arriving on your doorstep has made some novice chefs shine in the kitchen, those of us who are seasoned at home chefs often lament at the packaging and unsustainable nature of these kits.
Enter NIKU Farms. If you’re rocking a decent recipe box and a well-stocked pantry then you’re ready for NIKU Farms. Ethically raised and sourced from local Ontario farmers, NIKU Farms is disrupting the delivery industry, and offering reprieve to those who actually still venture out for groceries. The packages are sourced with environmentally friendly packaging, utilizing Green Cell Foam, a cornstarch product that provides a safe home for the frozen meats during shipping, while also allowing you to recycle or compost the packaging. You can literally run the foam under water and watch it disintegrate. NIKU Farms is the first meat-packing company in Canada to adopt this strict ethos to minimize garbage. Every avenue to minimize waste has been explored, allowing you to enjoy their proteins guilt-free.
So what goes into the box? Yes, naturally sourced hormone-free meats from local farms, us distinguished consumers would expect no less. But customers can explore a variety of proteins, from basic beef, pork and chicken, to more interesting options like bison, lamb and duck. Mixing it up it easy, each box can be a mix of cuts and meats, leaving you and your imagination to conjure up creative recipes, or stick to family favourites and stock up on staples.
Since the company works with local Ontario farmers and ships in Ontario only, the meats arrived swiftly, and each protein is carefully sealed with all the processing dates and farmer details. It’s great to see a name and face for the farmers- there’s no doubt where your meats are coming from. With fraudulent food and recalls every week, product traceability and accountability allows consumers to ethically shop- and supporting local farmers is our jam!
We tucked into a whole juicy roaster chicken, smoked perfectly on the Big Green Egg, served up with some local Ontario potatoes, mushrooms and field salad. Easy, satisfying and sustainable. As our dietitian community points out, March is nutrition month, so we’ve partnered with NIKU Farms to give one lucky reader a protein-rich meat box of their own!
