Most Common Questions

Fiid crafts a range of versatile plant-based meal bowls that are ready in minutes. Think delicious, natural, wholefood dishes like chillies and curries but without the mess or prep it takes to cook them from scratch. They're perfect to eat on their own or use them as a base by adding whatever you have in your kitchen - other veggies, rice or pasta; the options are endless!

Stored in your cupboard or pantry for up to 18 months, fiid is a gamechanger when it comes to prepping everyday meals.

Fiid puts healthy eating on autopilot by making it easy to enjoy delicious veggie-packed meals when you need them.

Order online by choosing your meals (in bundles of 15,20 or 30) and we'll deliver direct to your door in days.

Absolutely nothing! Lots of people enjoy fiid from a bowl with just a spoon but don't let that stop your creative juices from flowing. We really meant it when we said that these are versatile! Our bowls are perfect for adding to pasta, rice, veggies, potatoes - you name it, someone has tried it!

All our bowls are made from 100% natural ingredients that you would cook with yourself at home - vegetables, legumes, herbs and spices. You won't find anything artificial or that you can't pronounce. With fiid, there's nothing added except time (ours though, because you're busy. we get it.)

We place the fresh ingredients in our fiid pouch, seal it and then cook it gently to perfection in a hot water bath. This extends the shelf life of each meal naturally, without any additives or preservatives which means that your fiid can be stored in your pantry, ready for when you need it.

There's another important reason why we cook our bowls this way - Food Waste. Over one third of all food produced goes to landfil and through this cooking method, we've totally eliminated Food Waste from our supply chain.

Absolutely. All our bowls have instructions for heating in both the microwave and on the hob at the back of the pack.

Our packaging falls under recycling symbol 7, which unfortunately isn't fully recyclable kerbside in most areas so please check before adding to your green bin.

Recently, Ireland announced that they will accept all soft plastics within your household recycling bin. This means that you can now add your fiid pouches to your green bin.

Ingredients & Nutrition

Oh yes! Fiid's mission is ot make healthy everyday meals easy for everyone so we work hard to make sure each fiid bowl contains only natural, plant-based ingredients that you can actually pronounce - think lots of things that you have at home in your kitchen and none of what you learned about in chemistry. We only ever use natural ingredients with zero additives, preservatives or fillers. Using this simple philosophy we make it easy for you to understand our nutrition labels and to eat well, always.

Yes, all fiid products are certified gluten-free by ALS laboratories. All of our ingredients are naturally gluten-free and our bowls are made on a gluten-free line in our kitchen to avoid the risk of cross-contamination.

No. While we have made a conscious effort to use only non-GMO ingredients in our bowls, we are not currently pursuing organic certification. Right now our number one priority is creating delicious, nutritious and natural food while keeping our products accessible to everyone. By choosing organic ingredients, our price point would have been prohibitive to a lot of people and that’s not what we are about. In saying that, it is something we would like to start exploring down the line as we grow and it makes sense.

All our bowls are gluten free and are made on a gluten free line to preventy cross contamination. Please ask us for lab certification if this is a concern for you.

See below for other allergens used when makng our bowls:

- Rich Sundried Tomato & Lentil Ragu: contains celery

- Tangy Chickpea & Coconut Curry: contains mustard

Corn starch, sometimes also called corn flour, is a carbohydrate extracted from the endosperm of corn. We use it in a number of our bowls to thicken the consistency and you’ll find it in many of your favourite healthy sauces and soups in the supermarket. It’s a very tiny percentage of each dish and because cornstarch is made using only corn and contains only carbohydrates, it is gluten free. However if you do have an allergy to corn we would advise that you seek the advice of your doctor before eating fiid.

Yes, we only use non-GMO ingredients in all our bowls.

Packaging

We get that plastic is public enemy number 1 but plastic also provides a huge number of benefits. In the case of fiid, we chose plastic for our pouches because of the unique barrier it provides enabling us to extend the shelf life of our products naturally without any additives or preservatives.

This way we avoid contributing to the global food waste issue - 6.7% of greenhouse gas emissions globally come from wasted food. To put this in context: it’s around three times the global emissions from aviation. Yes, you read that correctly.
Or, if we were to put it in the context of national emissions, it would be the world’s third largest emitter. Only China (21%) and the United States (13%) emitted more.

Although not fully recyclable, our packaging is better for the environment by providing a low carbon footprint- it weighs less, uses less energy to produce and is easier for transport. We recently conducted a product carbon footprint analysis, and our packaging made up less than 9% of our total footprint. It's not perfect but right now, no superior alternative exists that can provide these sustainability benefits to us however we'll continue working with suppliers until one does.

Our packaging falls under recycling symbol 7, which unfortunately isn't fully recyclable kerbside in most areas so please check before adding to your green bin.

Recently, Ireland announced that they will accept all soft plastics within your household recycling bin. This means that you can now add your fiid pouches to your green bin.

Compostable packaging is wonderful but not suitable for fiid! Firstly it's a wet product and biodegradable packaging is mostly suitable for dried products like coffee beans or dry pasta. Secondly the packaging would disintegrate during our wet cooking process which would be a waste but also a huge mess.

Yes! We use 100% plastic ALOPET and it is completely BPA free.

No way José! Our founder Shane has always loved to eat delicious, natural food (he comes from a background in food spanning 7 different countries!) but found that the only time he was compromising on quality and taste was when he was stuck for time. He knew there had to be a better solution and so began his journey with fiid.

So no, we are not trying to replace home cooked food. Think of us as your right hand man, ready when you need us.

We place the fresh ingredients in our fiid pouch, seal it and then cook it gently to perfection in a hot water bath. This extends the shelf life of each meal naturally, without any additives or preservatives which means that your fiid can be stored in your pantry, ready for when you need it.
