Wishing you a very happy, healthy and tasty New Year!

16 Jan 2017

It’s that time of year again to make a New Year’s resolution for a fresh and healthy new start, but how to stick to it is the question

So we thought we’d make it easy for you with Veg Box People’s fresh local veg box – brought to you right here on campus every week!

But what makes Veg Box People such a great healthy option?

The fresher the veg, the more enzymes and healthy nutrients are stored within. That’s why we aim to get your veg out to you within a matter hours of harvest, meaning it’s fresh and full of life, unlike lots of veg that has been in storage and transit for days.

All of our veg is produced organically, meaning it’s great for long term soil health, biodiversity and great for us too! According to recent research conducted at Newcastle University, organic veg has up to 69% more free-radical fighting antioxidants than its non-organic counterpart, an important part of a healthy lifestyle.

It tastes great! Because our veg is produced so locally (some within three miles) it is super fresh, so as well as being healthy it really holds its taste. Once you start eating local organic veg you won't go back to supermarket veg!

This is all possible because of our strong relationships with the most local farmers. Veg Box People is working with local farmers to help them plan their crops and pay them fairly for their hard work and delicious veg – making it the fairest veg in town!

So signing up to Veg Box People is more than just a weekly veg bag, it’s joining a healthy and fair food revolution – which will give you an amazing boost into 2017!
