Reducing our carbon footprint and running a sustainable business are key parts of our mission. To that end, we have partnered with Canada Green Natural Products to source 100% compostable food packaging.
Our dry ingredients are packaged in paper cups with a PLA (Polylactic Acid) lining and our wet ingredients are in smaller complete PLA containers. PLA is natural polymer made from sugar cane which doesn't leach harmful chemicals and is fully compostable! Our boxes are made from recycled paper and can be reused or placed in the recycling.
Our commitment to quality and preventing the transmission of covid-19
Here at Well Baked Box, the safety and wellness of our employees and customers remains our highest priority especially during these difficult times. To that end, all of our staff follow additional health and safety measures in our facilities so that we can continue feeling great about the whole food ingredients we deliver.
We want to share with you some of our most frequently asked questions and answers so that you feel confident when opening your box.
Can I contract COVID-19 from my Well Baked Box?
According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), there is no evidence that food or food packaging can result in the transmission of COVID-19. Nevertheless, we closely follow the Health Canada guidelines to reduce the risk of transmitting any pathogens and to continue delivering great food.
Do I need to wash anything in my box after I get it?
In accordance with best practices, our drivers frequently sanitize their hands and are continuing to offer contactless delivery. If desired, you may wipe down the outside of the box with a disinfectant wipe when you receive your box. Some of our recipes include fresh fruits and vegetables, which should be thoroughly washed just as you would if you purchased them from the store or market.
What steps are you taking within your facilities regarding COVID-19?
To prevent the transmission of the disease, we screen all of our staff at the beginning of their shift for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. We don't take chances with sore throats or light coughs. Within our packaging facility, our staff wear masks, gloves, and hair nets to give us the highest confidence in the ingredients we deliver.
