Make 2018 your year to eat healthily, with a little help from Veg Box People

18 Jan 2018

Veg Box People have started the year by taking stock, looking at how much fresh local produce went into your bags in 2017 and it was loads!

Veg Box infographic

In a survey carried out by Veg Box People over the summer, over 65% of customers felt they had changed their diets by being involved in the box scheme, be that eating more healthily, seasonally or trying completely new veg.

Customers also cited the benefits of the box scheme as convenience, good value, a friendly face (instead of a faceless corporation), wasting a lot less food due to quality (and it being super tasty!), environmental benefits and supporting a fairer food system.

So if any of your new year’s resolutions involve health, environment or supporting local farmers - or you simply want to eat great local food - a weekly bag from Veg Box People could be your answer.
