About Us


Did you ever wonder 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 your bank should not exclude anyone from the many benefits of healthy plant-based eating. Oh, and one more thing, 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 answer all these needs. 


With the help of natural food experts and food engineers, Mark identified Peru as the ideal first 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 don't have to be frozen or refrigerated to stay delicious and nutritious. 


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


Just open, eat, complete.
