About Us

OUR STORY

Have you ever wondered why convenient, healthy, and affordable food can be so hard to come by? VegReady was born from this simple question. 


In 2019, making better food choices should be as easy as clicking a button. Busy schedules and the desire not to break the bank should not exclude anyone from the many benefits of healthy, plant-based eating. The solution should not be a freezer stacked with stale, frozen foods. We all deserve better. 


That's why our CEO, Mark Perlmutter, set out to create the perfect product that would satisfy all these needs. 


With the help of natural food experts and food engineers, Mark identified Peru as the first ideal cuisine because they were the first country on our planet to outlaw the use of GMO food. Together, they crafted the most flavorful and convenient plant-based meals around


To ensure the highest quality, each step of production is carried out by a family-owned company. From planting the vegetables to harvesting, cooking, and packaging, your food is looked after every step of the way with love and pride. Thanks to the technology of natural food-processing, our meals contain no chemical preservatives and still do not require freezing or refrigeration to stay delicious and nutritious. 


With our 12-month shelf life at room-temperature, you can be sure to always have a healthy meal within arms reach. No refrigeration. No heating. Together, we can build a better world! 


Just open, eat, complete.

What a great idea - healthy plant-based meals in a box! Now, there is a prescription I will love to write! This is the real medicine that Hippocrates told us to eat so long ago - and this ancient food-based "therapy" is the key to disease-prevention and healing for our busy 21st century lives!"

"So many people are concerned about their time to prepare vegan meals and it seems overwhelming. It's so nice to have this option to offer people to make (eating vegan) user-friendly."
