SunFresh Produce has launched an organic box scheme this Organic September called Pikt

The new box scheme is Soil Association Certified, carries the Plastic Free Trust Mark and is aimed at home, work and catering.

For a year, the team at SunFresh has been busy building precisely what the people asked for,  they attended the GO Organic Festival in 2018 and surveyed over +1200 attendees listening to every comment. 

Launched for Organic September, Pikt goes beyond the norm; it doesn't just contain beautiful organic fresh produce and a certified B Corp, they are the only box scheme to obtain the Plastic Free Trust Mark.

Through the research, customers asked for freshness, quality, selection, hassle-free delivery and zero plastic, including a way to limit food waste, SunFresh listened and created a box option to suit all occasions and mouths to feed.

“Pikt is the first to tackle food waste, and we let customers choose the contents of their box, each box is hand-packed and bespoke. We don’t offer formats only suited to large families, that’s not helpful and contributes to waste, especially as 1 in 3 meals is eaten alone in the UK” said SunFresh CEO, Matt Godfroy adding “We believe putting people and the planet before profit is how all businesses should be managed, that’s why we are proud to be using SunFresh Produce and Pikt as a force for good.”
