That’s why we’re working to make all of our packaging planet-friendly. Olindas is currently using 90% sustainable materials (compostable, recyclable, or post-consumer recyclable (PCR) for our packaging, cases, coverings, and whatever else our food touches. It’s a major part of how we (and you) Eat the Solution. If you can help is further in our mission towards sustainability in food and packaging, please to email@example.com
Can I customize my meal plan?
When working as a private chef, my clients barely knew what I would serve them, before I plated them. But one thing they did know; it would be delicious and nutrious, with the most seasonal food of that moment. When recieving your order, we always make sure to design your menu as varied as possible. We are currently working on a customer portal where you can log in and manually select your meals, untill then, we make it effortlessly simple and make the selection for you.
