ABOUT US


FeastBox is about breaking down the boundaries of cooking different cuisines with unique ingredients. You’ll relive the delicious memories of the meals from travels and experience the tastes of places you’ve not yet visited.

We are more than just a recipe box. You’ll impress yourself and improve your cooking confidence as you try new flavours and deepen your understanding and appreciation of ingredients and cultural culinary treasures. In the process, you also reduce the boredom of the same old weeknight meals!

No matter how exotic a dish might sound or how unfamiliar an ingredient may be, we make sure our recipes guide you clearly so that you can make it taste as good as it should.

THE FEASTBOX STORY

Jyoti Patel - CEO of FeastBox

Our story starts with Jyoti’s grandmother. Jyoti grew up with her life revolving around the kitchen. Most evenings spent sous cheffing as her grandmother whipped up irresistible dishes for her large Indian family, finding endless ways to combine different ingredients and conjure up new flavours.

Years later and intent on doing her grandmother proud, she turned her uni kitchen into a riot of colours, fragrances and flavours— spicing up pasta, jazzing up beans on toast and stir-frying like an Indian. Rocking up at uni made her realise just how many of her friends were missing out on all the incredible ingredients she’d grown up tasting! That's when she made it her mission to ensure global ingredients were made accessible to everyone.

In 2017 Jyoti started Red Rickshaw, now the largest online global ingredient grocer in the UK. As Red Rickshaw grew and Jyoti became a mother, life began to get in the way of great meals. Needing inspiration and a convenient way to inject excitement back into everyday meals, the idea of FeastBox was born. Why should the everyday be boring?

Jyoti created FeastBox to bring discovery back to everyday cooking. FeastBox connects us to the places we dream of visiting and the experiences we love to reminisce about. Weeknight cooking that embraces ingredients, celebrates their provenance and appreciates the culinary treasures of different places and traditions.

Access to hard-to-find ingredients

FeastBox is powered by Red Rickshaw, the largest online global ingredient grocer. It's like all the world's markets in one – we call it the ingredient market of dreams.

Recipes that are the real deal

We celebrate the origins of ingredients, the rich history of a recipe and the culture it comes from. A good recipe is a precious heirloom — it must be treasured and handled with care

Impress yourself and those you cook for

FeastBox always features a vibrant array of vegetables, spices, herbs and proteins, with a menu of hard-to-forget recipes. This makes for deliciousness but also a diverse range of nutrients and we're also proud to shout about our vast selection of vegetarian and vegan options. Our recipes prove that plant-based superstars like tofu, jackfruit and lentils mean meat-free does not mean flavour-free.

OUR COMMITMENT TO PEOPLE & PLANET

Sourcing food smartly

FeastBox is a climate-smart enterprise. As specialists in global cuisines, many of our recipes contain ingredients that grow seasonally in their country of origin. Harvesting seasonally means these farms can avoid using high quantities of harmful pesticides or fertilisers and save on the energy wasted on growing produce and keeping it 'fresh' in cold storage. Read more about how we source our ingredients.

Giving back

For every FeastBox recipe you enjoy, we donate to Action Against Hunger. That means that by choosing FeastBox, you are helping to tackle the fight against malnutrition worldwide.

And through our proud partnership with Give Back Box, you can repurpose the cardboard boxes we send you while also donating to those in need.

Reducing food waste

Food must have a sustainable future. But food waste is one of the most notable contributors to climate change. We are dedicated to making FeastBox as environmentally friendly as possible.

FeastBox boxes contain pre-measured ingredients so that you can keep food waste to an absolute minimum. Our packing materials are sustainable, our insulation material is made from denim offcuts, our ice packs are reusable, and our pods, box and paper bags are all recyclable.
