I have been having Abel & Cole delivered every week for the past year and a half and its always nothing short of the best quality, service, variety and value.
Every Wednesday we have the boxes delivered to our front door, beautifully packaged in recyclable and re-useable containers a with enough food to last us the whole week. We buy fruit and veges, bread, pasta sauces, muesli, spices herbs, cleaning products, tea, coffee. Basically you could buy pretty much everything you need from Abel and Cole and not need to leave the house and carry back heavy bags.
They sell lots of vegan things so perfect for us Lifescapers!
They also pick up empty last weeks boxes to take back to warehouse and reuse.
The try to keep their carbon footprint down as much as possible by not air-freighting things in and believe in supporting local British farmers from all of the country.
Able and Cole started delivering just potatoes many years ago and have grown and developed so much that they are now almost a household name amongst organic lovers out there!
For those of you who are new to organic food, the Abel and Cole boxes they are famous for, are the perfect start.
You can choose from small, medium, large, fruit boxes, vege boxes and you can also choose your own individual items.
You order online, can make regular orders so they arrive every week and change things and add to orders a few days before the delivery is due to arrive.
The staff at Abel and Cole give the best friendly, customer service and I wouldn’t change to another delivery service for quids.
Now! onto what I would like to review! We had a medium veg box sent to us containing the following:
Bananas (Fairtrade) Carrots Celery Green Cabbage Green Lettuce Mandarins Pears Potatoes Tomatoes White Onions
People think that organic always means super expensive but I do feel that buying these boxes are the best way to start including some organic goods into your home. With a medium box that we feel is perfect for 2 people, you can have bananas on your muesli (we order one from A&C every week my husband is literally addicted to it!), some for snacks, stir frys with the vegs, oven baked vegetables, make a delicious pear dessert, tomato pasta sauce, a few juices, mandarins for snacks and many more things that you can come up with.
You can obviously add more to your order, try just once, or set up a regular online account like we do. It really is the best way to shop when you are a busy person, with not much time to yourself!
Abel and Cole regularly add new items and lines to their range and include lots of fair trade goods.
