Also perfect for Flexitarians looking for a tasty meat free option throughout the week or the recipes provide the option to add meat if desired. Locally produced, inspired by global flavours, these meals are bursting with freshness. Culinary Educator, chef and Nutritionist, Kim Close has helped them devise these wholesome vegetarian recipes packed full of flavour with easy step-by-step instructions. These meal kits will put clean cooking and natural ingredients at the centre of your table.
After 12 years of hand picking produce and delivering to the door William and Leanne wanted to offer their produce direct from the farm. With the cost of opening a shop the Donnans felt vending would be an option to do this.
After being in Scotland and meeting Stuart they opted to go for the Lock Blox machine. With having the touch screen this will give a better buying experience than other machines. The fact they could have chilled and non chilled lockers all working from the same control unit was a massive influence in their decision. Payter contacless has been included in their machine and they are already report over 60% of sales are being paid for by card. This is rising weekly.
