HelloFresh, the global leader in meal kit delivery has teamed up with Cascades Inc. (cascades.com) to provide even more sustainable packaging with the northbox™ insulated container. HelloFresh is the first meal kit delivery service in the U.S. to utilize this box model, which will help keep food insulated for optimal freshness in transit and take the guesswork out of recycling for customers.

Initially, the new packaging will be rolled out to a significant share of HelloFresh’s customers nationwide with boxes shipped from distribution centers in New Jersey, Texas and California. The new packaging speaks to HelloFresh’s commitment to increase product sustainability across the board.
