Your Homegrown Meal Kits Are Here for Your Convenience
As consumers are constantly provided with a growing list of options on where to acquire their necessities during this pandemic, business establishments are acclimatizing by innovating more creative practices like meal kits.
What’s a meal kit?
Meal kits weren’t a thing until 2010. The concept of home delivery of pre-portioned ingredients to create specific meals was new and interesting and quickly hailed as a major disruption to the food retail industry. The season of Do-It-Yourself has finally invaded the food industry. At first, there seemed to be no end to the benefits consumers could realize with meal kits — it produced less waste, simplified food prep for a gourmet-experience, the ultimate benefit of convenience and even a way to spend more quality time with the family. Then there was the key benefit that was shaped from our current situation — avoiding a trip to the store or to pick-up at the restaurant.
How did it thrive locally?
Brick-and-mortar grocery store and restaurant experience was not entirely horrible before. But with social distancing and application of the food & medicine passes in the quarantine period, we can all agree that the ordeal of lining up in these physical establishments has made us more anxious and fidgety. In a month, consumers usually take an average of eight trips to the store and spend an average of 10 hours grocery shopping. With this, online grocery stores and restaurants with delivery service have taken off because you can simply buy online fresh meat and fruits and even meals online and wait for the goods to be delivered safely to your home.
Why should you consider getting one?
