Our Local small scale farmers have the most amazing products.
So we wanted to make sure you can have access to these and that we support our local farmers with a market, a transparent supply chain and most importantly: Fair Margins. 
The Local Food Box entails fruits and vegetables that have been grown under transparent and natural conditions and are sourced as local as possible.
 
The content of the box is based on seasonality and currently entails a mix of:
  • Apples, Pears
  • Potatoe, Beetroot, Parsnip
  • Onion, Spring Onion, Carrots
  • Paprika, Aubergine
  • Kohlrabi, Celery 
  • + 1 Special Vegetable/ Fruit of the Week
 

What do the different boxes entail?

We have created different boxes for the different needs of our customers. Please find in the options above the choice between either fruits, vegetables or mixed boxes. In addition to that, you can choose between different sizes, ranging from small size (4kg) to regular size (8kg).

The box entails at least 6-10 different varieties of fruits/ vegetables, depending on seasonality and box variety / size.

For Offices and Restaurants, we have created special boxes. The office boxes are specially designed for offices with a focus on small, hand-size fruits that are easy to eat and do not create a lot of mess - perfect for a healthy and clean office. 
For restaurants, we have created a box that is focused on providing a great addition to any restaurant. This box entails only a low variety of fruits and/ or vegetables (maximum 4 varieties) in order to ensure that there is a larger amount of every variety to supply enough dishes for the restaurant. 

 

Frequently asked questions:

1. How is the Box delivered?
We aim for a sustainable delivery method for our food boxes. In the Amsterdam area, we deliver only with 100% electric vehicles. 
For deliveries throughout the Netherlands, we focus on delivering as much as possible with electric vans; depending on the available vehicles and delivery location this is not 100% possible yet.

3. What about the packaging of the box?
We do not use any plastic for our packaging. Currently, we still package the fruits & vegetables in non-reusable carton boxes. This allows us to guarantee Food Safety. We are working on implementing a solution that allows us to deliver the items in a reusable box, which can be exchanged during every delivery.  

4. Are the products in the box 100% organic?
No - 'organic' is just a label which farmers often have to pay a lot of money for and which sometimes actually creates more problems in the food system than it solves. All of the products in this box however are grown under conditions that are comparable to organic and sometimes even exceed the quality of regular organic products. 

5. Where are the products in the box sourced from?
We source our products from local, small-scale Dutch and Western-European farms, such as A.G.F. Direct and the Lindenhoff Farm. The products are all grown under transparent and natural conditions with the most sustainable practices in mind and are sourced as local as possible.
