What makes Eat Fresco deliciously local?
Eat Fresco takes a local approach to prepared meals. Eat Fresco meals are locally made in our Tampa kitchen. Ingredients are locally sourced whenever possible. After cooking, meals are packaged fresh, never frozen, and delivered to your neighborhood store. We launched in Tampa Bay but plan to bring our same fresh and local approach to many markets in the future.
I am not familiar with this type of packaging, how does it work? Is it safe?
We searched for the best packaging available to keep our food fresh without the need for chemicals or preservatives. We partnered with Sealed Air and their Simple Steps technology. The vacuum-sealed package locks in the freshness and allows for superb heating. When heated, moisture causes the film to expand and then self vent. This steam assisted heating ensures even temperatures without a loss of moisture.
The plastic tray is made of polypropylene (#5). It is commonly used for food containers, due to its high melting point. The tray is recyclable in most municipalities and is BPA free.
How long do the meals last and can I freeze them?
We indicate a best if used by/freeze by date on every product. Eat Fresco meals stay fresh for up to two weeks in the refrigerator, and they can last for months in the freezer.
Where can I buy Eat Fresco products?
Visit our "Where to Buy" page for a list of stores that currently carry our products. As new stores are added, we will update that page as well as post on our Facebook page. If you would like to receive updates directly, please subscribe to our newsletter.
If there is a store that you would like us to contact about carrying Eat Fresco, please let us know.
Can I heat Eat Fresco in an oven or toaster oven?
You can certainly heat in a conventional oven or toaster, but please remove the food from the white tray and place it in an oven safe container. You will need to heat at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-14 minutes or until heated thoroughly.
Will more options be available?
We currently have eight meals to choose from. Our chefs are hard at work developing more great recipes to expand our line. If you have a favorite dish you would like for us to consider, please let us know using our contact form, or via our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages.
