Australia’s best meal kit services in 2021

Australia's best meal kit services

We all lead busy lives and the last thing many of us want to think about is what to cook for dinner or that dreaded trip to the grocery store. Especially during a year of lockdowns, meal delivery kits have been a real lifesaver for families wanting to avoid take out while looking for convenience at their fingertips when it comes to nutritious, home-cooked meals.

But just which of the long list of meal kit services are the best in Australia? Well, that’s where this year’s Mozo People's Choice Awards step in. We asked close to 4,000 Aussies to tell us which meal kit service they thought stood out from the crowd.

Unlike our Experts Choice Awards, the winners are determined solely by the votes of customers and not our team of researchers. So you can see what other home cooks love, we’ve compiled the meal kits everyday Australians said had outstanding customer satisfaction levels, great recipes and much more. 

Outstanding Customer Satisfaction

Being supported through your customer journey is an important process when making any type of purchase. EveryPlate was awarded for “overall satisfaction with your experience” going above and beyond to help their customers have a great journey.

Value for Money

Finding a meal kit service that won’t break the bank on your weekly budget can be challenging. In this year’s awards Aussies named Dinnerly the best when it came to great value for money on their pre-portioned ingredients and recipe options, with meals starting from as little as $4.85 per portion.

Great Recipes

Having great variety and delicious recipes is an important selling point for any kind of meal kit service. Aussies rated HelloFresh as having a tantalising selection of meal choices above all others in their field.

Freshness

The freshest of produce and quality ingredients are the foundations of any great culinary experience. In its inaugural year, Marley Spoon has beaten its rivals for providing the freshest ingredients for home cooks.

Easy Ordering

Easy ordering is a must when it comes to meal kits. The meal kit service that was identified as offering one of the easiest, quickest and most straight-forward ordering system was Dinnerly.

Subscription Flexibility

Needs change as quickly as the weather, and so might your need for at-home meal kits. Customers judged EveryPlate as offering the greatest choice and flexibility when it came to their subscription policy.

Most Recommended

Recommendations to family and friends are not taken lightly, and neither are the meal kit services which you recommend. This year, Aussies chose Home Chef as the service provider that they would recommend the most.
