If you’re looking for an easier way to stick to an organic diet, you’re not alone. There are many benefits to eating organic foods—produce contains fewer pesticides, animals that have been raised organically are not given antibiotics or growth hormones, and organic farming is much better for the environment. This is because it helps to reduce air pollution, conserve water, and it uses less energy.
Many organic meal delivery services have come onto the market to provide convenient and affordable organic meals for their customers. By using a meal delivery service, people are able to prepare nutritious meals right in the comfort of their own homes. Some even come pre-made!
If you want to try one of these services yourself, you might be wondering which one, out of the hundreds available, you should go with. To help you make the right decision, I’m sharing six of the best organic meal delivery services currently available and what they have to offer.
1. Sun Basket
For organic produce and clean ingredients, Sun Basket has you covered. They offer a variety of meal plans, including: Chef’s Choice, Paleo, Lean & Clean, Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Mediterranean, Vegan, and Pescatarian. All of these plans provide you with delicious meals that are made from high-quality ingredients. Plus, based on our review, the recipes are pretty simple to cook.
When it comes to the produce they use, they’ve made it their mission to source the highest quality they can find from over 100 farms and producers. Currently, over 99% of the produce they pass on to customers is organic. The meats they provide are top notch as well. Everything is free from antibiotics and hormones. And they work with ranchers and farmers who raise their animals both responsibly and sustainably. When ordering, you’ll find select recipes allow you to choose organic, grass-fed, grass-finished beef as well as organic chicken and pork.
Plated is another company that is focused on providing their customers with the best quality possible. They work exclusively with trusted partners, allowing them to carefully source all of the ingredients that goes into their meals.
Their pork and poultry are always responsibly raised without antibiotics and even the beef is free from added hormones. Plus, any seafood meals will contain fish that have been sustainably caught by the trusted fisheries they work with.
For produce, they ensure everything sent is fresh and in season, while also being organic whenever possible. Sometimes Plated is unable to obtain organic produce, which means they will occasionally substitute for something that’s still of high quality. Their meals will even include artisanal ingredients that are typically made in small batches and hand-crafted.
3. Grass Roots
Grass Roots is not quite a typical meal delivery service. Rather, they send you incredibly high quality, organic meats. The way their service works is pretty revolutionary. They’ve teamed up with a variety of farms so that they can offer different types and cuts of meat. Together, these farms are called a “cooperative” because they all work in unison together.
What makes Grass Roots one of our favorite organic meal delivery services is not only that their meat is incredibly high quality and delicious, it’s because they give you tons of information on every single cut of meat you order. You’ll be able to learn things like where the animal was raised, how much it cost to raise, and what it ate.
4. Green Chef
Green Chef is committed to providing their customers with restaurant-quality meals with the help of fresh, organic ingredients. In fact, they are one of the few meal delivery services that are USDA-certified organic. All of their meals are free from genetically modified ingredients and also sustainable. Their team works with farmers and food manufacturers who are focused on investing back into the environment.
When choosing a company like Green Chef, you can feel confident that your meals are free from pesticides, petroleum-based synthetic fertilizers, antibiotics, growth hormones, and steroids (one of the most exhaustive lists of banned additives).
This allows you to eat with confidence every single time. And you you can expect this quality when you pick any one of their meal plans, which include: Omnivore, Paleo, Keto, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, and Carnivore.
If you’ve been on the hunt for a place to purchase your meat, ButcherBox is another organic meal delivery service you should check out. Like Grass Roots, instead of being a typical service that provides you with ingredients to make dinner, they give you a selection of meats. It’s up to you to prepare the meats and pair them with a full dish.
Their beef is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. The cows are never treated with antibiotics or given any kind of hormones. Plus, the cows are humanely raised and spend their entire lives living on pasture.
For their chicken, they source free-range and organic chicken, as well as pasture-raised chicken. These chickens are certified humane, so they have access to outdoor fields, as well as shelter. And they always have plenty of room to move about and interact with the other chickens they’re raised with. And for pork, ButcherBox goes for heritage breed, a special pig which is free of antibiotics and hormones. Their pigs are never fed ractopamine, which is to promote growth and frequently given to pork.
6. Factor 75
For those who are looking for pre-made meals that still contain healthy ingredients, you’ll want to check out Factor 75. Their meals are prepared by a chef and delivered straight to your door for the ultimate convenience. However, just because they’re pre-made, it doesn’t mean they skimp on quality! They use grass-fed and pastured meats that have been raised without antibiotics or hormones. The produce in their meals is fully organic. And everything is free from preservatives and genetically modified ingredients. Factor 75 also works directly with sustainable and ethical farmers, some of which they share on their website.
Veestro is committed to being 100% plant-based, preservative-free, and organic. Their meals are crafted by a chef, fully prepared, and then delivered straight to you. That means all you have to do is heat and enjoy. Just like Factor 75, no cooking required!

In fact, over 96% of the ingredients they use to craft their dinners are organic. And there will never be any added preservatives.
