Honest Food

With 50% of the range under 400 calories, we commit to catering for a diverse range of lifestyle choices and aim to deliver quality and taste time and again.

Here’s how we do it. Read more

Situated in Leicester, we recognise the importance of the environment to the agricultural and food industries and are proud to be part of the UK Plastic Pact. That’s why our sandwich and wrap boxes contain zero plastic and are made from fully sustainable materials. We keep a careful eye on how many of our products stay on the shelves but, if there is a surplus, all food waste is positively reused to create new energy.

We’re proud to have plastic free skillets and wrap boxes. We've replaced the plastic layer with cellulose, a sustainable plant- based alternative, so if our packaging does end up in landfill it will biodegrade. We’ve now saved 2.75 tonnes of plastic and counting from the waste stream. Oh, and our pasta and salad pots are made from recyclable plastic, too. Not bad hey?

Partnered with FareShare, Honest Crust is committed todonating the equivalent of 200,000 meals to vulnerable people this year. One of the UK’s leading charities tackling food hunger, FareShare takes surplus food from the food industry and ensures it doesn’t go to waste by redistributing it to those in need.

Without FareShare, 46% of the vulnerable people they support would have gone without a meal last month. FareShare reaches 1,500 towns and cities across the UK and distribute food supplies to homeless shelters, kids clubs, and lunch clubs for the elderly. Not bad, huh?

That’s why we’re keen to give them a helping hand and ask for your help too.

Don’t take our word for it….

FareShare and the charities we work with rely on the long term support of businesses and Honest Crust’s donation is vital to us.
