FAQs

what we do

We deliver fresh, sustainable and always delicious meals to your desk or door. We only use the finest seasonal ingredients from local suppliers and offer breakfast, lunch and dinner - on a regular or ad hoc basis - for both large and small groups. 

how to order

Orders can be placed via our website, app or over the phone 020 7498 5759. To order online you need to create an account, this takes 30 seconds and just means your contact details will be saved for future orders. If you would like help putting together an order get in touch by email order@potage.co.uk or call 0207 498 5759. 

portion sizes

All our meals are available in either individual pots (one per person) or sharing boxes (help yourself buffet style). We have 3 different sized sharing boxes; a small (2 portions), medium (6 portions) and large (12 portions) box. We recommend one portion per person, however when feeding a large group we usually suggest getting a few extra portions as people tend to eat more when they help themselves. If you would like help putting together an order fill out our order form and one of our team will get back to you with a draft menu. We hate waste so will always be honest and work within your budget.

order cut off

Order up to 3 weeks in advance or same day. However, we always recommend placing an order by 5pm the day before delivery to avoid disappointment. All our meals are freshly prepared to order so we do occasionally run out! For any last minute order requests or weekend orders please call 020 7498 5759.

finest ingredients

We work closely with local suppliers who deliver daily (in reusable creates) to make sure we are always using the freshest, seasonal ingredients. Our meat is from HG Walter an independent, family run butcher that source their meat from small, passionate British farmers, who use traditional, free-range farming methods and organic feed. Our fruit, veg and fish are from New Covent Garden Market and wherever possible we try to select seasonal produce from local British farms. 

our packaging

We work with leading suppliers in sustainable packaging to make sure we are always using the most eco friendly option. We use minimal packaging and only deliver cutlery, plates, napkins on request. All our meals can be delivered in either individual boxes (one per person) or larger sharing boxes (buffet style, one big box for each salad).  

send a gift delivery

If you would like to send someone a gift delivery you can either buy them an e-gift voucher or place an order and have it delivered it to the recipients address. Our gift vouchers are emailed to you to either forward or print off. The vouchers can be used multiple times until credit runs out and you can add a personalised message when ordering. If you want to send a surprise order then you just need to place the order online and let us know it's a gift in the notes box at checkout. You can also add a personalised note for us to handwrite in the notes box at checkout. We recommend giving us the recipients phone number incase there are any problems with delivery and we don't send receipts on gift orders.

cancel an order

Orders can be cancelled anytime up to 24 hours before a delivery slot. Unfortunately we can't cancel orders after this time as orders will have been placed with our suppliers and deliveries booked. We are really proud to make our meals to order so we have virtually zero waste and whatever is left we sit down and enjoy for lunch as a team.

what is healthy eating

Scientists and health professionals are beginning to understand that the old fashioned criticism of single nutrients as the root of all evil is not the most helpful approach to healthy eating. We don’t tend to eat sugar, salt or fat on its own. We eat a complex diet composed of many different foods, often combined together to make meals. This means instead of arguing over whether we should eat more butter or less sugar, it’s more important to look at our diet as whole, thinking about how that food fits into your overall diet. Not just today, but also over weeks and months. Healthy eating is therefore a balance of quality, quantity and frequency, and each person's diet varies depending on their own activity level, nutritional needs and goals.

a whole lifestyle approach

Modern Western diet trends have today led to us eating more meat and animal products, less fresh fruits and vegetables and more processed convenience foods which is in part responsible for growing rates of chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. At present, a way of eating inspired by the traditional Mediterranean diet is thought by scientists to be one of the healthiest to follow, promoting long life good health. This diet is abundant in whole foods: fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, nuts, legumes, unsaturated oils (e.g. olive or rapeseed oil), with modest intakes of dairy, meat and even alcohol. Whole foods are foods that have been processed and refined as little as possible, before being eaten. They are loaded with everything our bodies need, from carbohydrates, protein, fats, fibre, minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients and many more. In nutrition, diet is the sum of food consumed by a person or other organism. Our dietary habits can help nourish our bodies and manage weight but it’s only one part of the pyramid that makes up a healthy lifestyle; enjoying food with others, being active and getting enough sleep are all important for physical and mental well-being.
