Truli – The Story Behind Our Healthy & Sustainable Meal Planning

Welcome!

I am glad to see that you are curious to find out what makes your Truli meal special. At Truli we thrive on creating healthy, delicious meals that are as sustainable as possible, without compromising on great flavour and providing you with a hearty filling meal.

We specialise in creating meals that make the most of what foods are in season, with a focus on using every part of an ingredient possible – from root to fruit, or nose to tail, with reduced waste being a goal every time. They have loved creating healthy delicious meal options for the Truli pilot, that appeal to as many different dietary types as possible. They are specialists in sustainably sourced, plant-based and also free-from cooking, and so the meal options they will create and make available to Truli customers will always aim to provide options for as many people as possible.

At Truli, we strive toward supporting healthy people and a healthy planet with everything we do.

Each week, the team creates British favourites, with a twist – adding great additions such as naturally pre-biotic foods that support gut health and immunity. You can read more about our general food strategy here.
