Meal Delivery And Compost All In One: How ethey Is Revolutionizing The Way Canada Eats

Must read

With sustainability at the core of what they do, ethey is a revolutionary meal subscription service that delivers fresh and ready to eat meals right to your door 

Eating nutritiously every single day is a lot of work, but one innovative company is changing that with its groundbreaking meal delivery service. Created with sustainability and wellness in mind, ethey is a weekly meal subscription that uses locally sourced ingredients to provide customers with ethically sourced, balanced, ready-to-eat meals delivered straight to their door. 

Ethey provides its customers with easy access to healthy meals that can save them hours in the kitchen each week. With many individuals not having enough time to spend in the kitchen, and the plethora of meal delivery services on the market, this company fills a unique gap in Canada’s ever growing food delivery industry, which is projected to be worth $98 billion dollars by 2027. Ethey not only offers a pre-cooked meal delivery service that caters to a wider audience, but the company also pledges to produce 0% food waste. 

“We decided to tackle the food waste problem after realizing how much food gets wasted. From growing, shipping, and production, to the grocery store, restaurants and households, food waste is a huge problem,” Nick Spina, Founder and CEO of ethey says. He explains that up to 40% of food produced globally is wasted, and that it has a catastrophic impact on the environment. Stretching far beyond the surface, food waste heavily contributes to climate change, impacting water usage, livestock, and carbon emissions around the world. In fact, when food waste ends up in a landfill, it produces harmful greenhouse gasses, and the nutrients from the food are not able to decompose and penetrate the soil. If global food waste were to be measured as a country, it would be the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gasses. 

Ethey combats this with a strategic, closed-loop production system that remarkably does not produce any waste. “We locally source ingredients whenever possible and our chefs prepare each meal to-order, which reduces waste from the start,” Spina says. “From there, we upcycle any food not used in the main aspects of our meals. For example, we upcycle broccoli and cauliflower stems and use them to create cauliflower rice, soups, stews, sauces, and more. Any organic matter not used in our meals gets sent down to the worm farm,” he adds.

Ethey is in partnership with The Wormery at the Grove, which is located in the basement of its facility in London, Ontario, to turn its food scraps into nutrient-rich soil. The worms consume the organic scraps that aren’t used in cooking, and their castings turn into fertilizer. The fertilizer is then used to garden, plant, and even grow ethey’s produce.

With every aspect of its business, ethey is thoughtful about sustainability, even down to its packaging and delivery system. All of ethey’s meals are delivered with 100% reusable and recyclable packaging, as well as with drain safe ice packs. 

The way it works is, you can select from 4, 6, 8, 12, or 20 pre-cooked meals per week on ethey’s website, which range in price from $11.99 – $15.99 per meal. Delivery happens 2-3 times a week across each region in Canada, and your only job is to sit back, relax, and enjoy your meal. “When the orders are placed, our meals are cooked and sent to you on a tight time frame to ensure everything is as fresh as possible,” Spina says. 

The company is truly amplifying the message of sustainability, and Spina hopes that it will inspire other brands to move in the same direction. “Our goal is to prevent 1 billion pounds of food waste simply by people choosing our meals over a restaurant or at-home cooking,” Spina says, and ethey is definitely on track to achieving that. The company’s pledge for sustainability and health prevents one pound of food waste from entering a landfill with every meal that it produces. 

So if you want to be a part of the revolution, and nourish your body, mind, and planet, be sure to check out ethey’s healthy, quick meals today.
