Who We Are

Fresh Prep is a fast-growing Vancouver meal-kit company that makes it easy to cook incredible meals in just 15-30 minutes. We do this by sourcing local ingredients for delicious recipes, which are then prepared in one of our two warehouses in East Vancouver and delivered to customers homes in reusable cooler bags. In 2018 and 2019, we were recognized by the Georgia Straight as Vancouver’s #1 meal kit and we recently became BCorp Certified! 

We value Team Members who see themselves as part of our vision and mission, so check out our story to learn more.
