  • Why do the meals come frozen?

    OK, it may not sound all that sexy – but hear us out. Vegetables and fruits you keep in the fridge or in your pantry lose valuable nutrients by the hour, as vitamins and minerals degrade over time. If you freeze them instead, you stop this process in its tracks. Because we freeze our veggies immediately after the harvest, you get to enjoy the freshest ingredients possible with the maximum nutritional value. In addition, freezing our meals means we don’t have to add any extra salt or preservatives to make sure our products keep for longer.

    Another advantage is that frozen foods help combat food waste. In the freezer, our meals stay fresh for a long time, leaving you free to choose when to eat them. Saves you another bag of sadly wilted string beans in your fridge.

  • Are Lazy Vegan meals gluten-free?

    Yes, they are! Every single one. Isn’t that brilliant?

  • Are Lazy Vegan meals organic?

    That’s something we’re working on. Right now, our meals aren’t 100% organic yet. We want them to be, and we’re working hard towards that goal. But because each of our meals has 30 to 40 different ingredients, and the availability of organic alternatives can be limited at times, we’re not ready to make the transition complete. As soon as we do, you’ll read about it here!

  • Are Lazy Vegan meals made locally?

    Yes and no. It all depends on your definition of “local”. All jokes aside: at the moment, 95% of the ingredients we use are grown in Europe. We’re working to get this percentage even higher and aiming to buy more and more of our resources locally.

    By the way, our headquarters and development team are based in Amsterdam.

  • Are Lazy Vegan meals non-GMO?

    Yes, all our meals are completely non-GMO.

  • Why have you chosen not to use soy?

    Because we think we’ll be able to do even more for the environment if we don’t just skip the animal ingredients, but also avoid soy.

    Right now, the problem with soy is that it’s overproduced, causing immense deforestation and loss of biodiversity. And that’s not even because we eat a lot of soy. It’s because 70 to 75% of all soy is used for animal feed… and ends up as steaks and pork chops. Soy in itself doesn’t have to be bad for the environment, as long as we change the way we consume it.

    That’s why we use pea protein in our meals instead. We love the flavour, and it helps you get all the protein you need to boot.
